Hi there,


Happy to help. The HIV test searches for two types of HIV antibodies. HIV 1 and 2. Index Value of <1.00 means that no significant concentration of the antibodies have been found. This is how a NEGATIVE result is ALWAYS given. What the result means is that if the person was just infected, or believes that they were exposed to HIV just now, it is recommended to have the test repeated in 3 months to look for antibodies again.


So, this is a NEGATIVE HIV result.


Hope this helps. Please accept this answer if you are happy with it. Please feel free to respond if I can help more.
