Customer Question

Hi Doc! I have been doing a lot of research on the accuracy of HIV PCR RNA test. I have done it 12 days and 35 days post exposure and got negative result. Why do they say that it is inacurate? Im on anti depressants! And i have been told it doesnt affect the result. Please clarify. Thanks Doc

It is completely accurate at 21 days.

For sure.

Don't know who is saying it is inaccurate.

But it is 99% plus accurate.
