DearCustomer
The test you've listed the HIV panel 083824 is negative, which is very sensitive, meaning that you have an extremely unlikely chance of being positive. It sounds like the RNA and other PCR tests are your doctor's attempt at being very careful because so far the most helpful tests have been non-reactive which means that it is very very very likely that you are HIV negative.
I hope you can get some reassurance with this and best of luck wtih the test results.
