Avatar m tn Last weeks back, I tested with a home HIV test kit with a -ve result. The test it I used was EZ-TRUST HIV Rapid Test Kit It seems approved by USAID, but FDA deny it. What would you think my situation could be? I'm still a bit worried....Would appreciate your advice. Thanks! This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/585019'>In Home testing kit</a>.
Avatar m tn There is only one HIV Home collection kit approved by the FDA and that is the Home Access.
Avatar n tn I have used a HIV home test kit for HIV1 and 2 as it says that I bought online ,the test result came negative can I rely on that result as it says if the result is negative it is definitive and if positive it can be a false positive . Do I need to do another lab test ?
Avatar m tn I then received a reply from Dutch Health Inspectorate which is even more worrying not reassuring me that you could get infected with HIV from test!......... "The MiraTes HIV home test does not comply with these strict European regulations and does not contain a CE-mark. Therefore, it is not allowed to be sold in Europe. We simply cannot ascertain if the device gives a correct result, is effective, accurate, safe, etc. I think it is very unlikely that you get infected by a test.
Avatar n tn Teak, I understand there are no "home test kits" approved, but the FDA does approve the Home Access Express HIV-1 Test System in which you sample at home and send in for results. I was inquiring about this one. Any help would be appreciated. I can't find anything on the web.
Avatar m tn Hi guys, from my previous post of protected sex with a mexican girl I have since taken a Home HIV test, I used the iCare HIV test kit, well two of them and they both came out negative. I was just curious if anybody knew the brand and has heard that it is a good one to use. It says it is 99% accurate and was curious if this is true.
Avatar n tn No, you get can a result in 20 min with rapid tests they do in some places. The thing is that your result might not be accurate for 3 months. It can take up to 3 months (though many will earlier) to develop antibodies. Its not about how long the test itself takes, it is about how long it has been since you might have been exposed.
Avatar m tn I want to submit the sample via mail using this kit. The last time I had intercourse would be 8 weeks ago. Can we trust or confirm this Home Test Kit and be confident with its results. Thanks for the help.
Avatar n tn It wouldn't be reliable at all nor would any other test. 3 months dude is when you need to take your test and get a conclusive test result. If you want to do a Home Access test. Then do it at three months send it in and your results will be conclusive.

Avatar f tn Hi, I just used a HIV Home test kit (auto test VIH - I live in France) I followed every intructions correctly, exept this: I supposed to use the alcohol pad (disinfectant wipe) to wipe my hand, then prick it and take blood sample. But instead, I pricked my finger first, then wiped it with the alcohol pad and took the blood to test it. Which made the blood sample had acohol in it. Could it change the result? (Which is nagative btw) Do I need to check again? Thank you in advance!
Avatar m tn hi guys.. i would just like to ask the reliability of the fujibio hiv test kit..i bought this online on a site in the philippines..i tested negative exactly 30 days after my possible exposure...
Avatar m tn As I am in a remote area right now, I had to get a HIV rapid test approved for USAID. I understand these home rapid test kits has the HIV antigen embedded in the capture pad, which then will react if the blood sample is followed by the diluent and an HIV antibody was found in the blood specimen. According from the manufacturer site, this is what it said: "The assay starts with a diluent prepared sample applied to the sample well.
Avatar m tn I do not have much info about home access HIV test kit, but I can tell you that any test after 3 months well be conclusive
Avatar f tn is the home access test kit reliable? my ex-boyfriend lied to me and told me he was a virgin and i trusted him. we had sex without a condom because i was on the pill and now i'm freaking out. i need to test for peace of mind, i make myself sick thinking about it everyday. is the home access test reliable after 6 months? is it ok to order it from amazon? i still live with my parents and i don't want them to find out i'm testing for HIV. it's been at least 5 since my possible exposure.
Avatar m tn I had another hiv test with the home access test kit at 60 days (8.7 weeks), which was non reactive. i know conclusive results is 3 months but what are my chances with this results.

Avatar n tn at 6-8 weeks. Does the Home Access kit from the Home Access Company fit into this category. I found a thread on here that stated that the Home Access kit is 2nd generation. Does it REALLY matter?
