Thanks for this question
These are very accurate actually.
They are about 99% accurate.
I would make sure you are outside of the window for testing.
This would be about 3 months to be safe
So if used after 3 months of a possible exposure, they are 99% accurate

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
