Doctor :   sure go ahead
User :   actually i told u that i did hiv test after 3.5 month of ist incident and 89 day after second one test for both.
Doctor :   yes
User :   the lab head said we will do two tests one which takes 25 min and second elisa method which takes 2.5 hrs.When they did the 25 min test i was there and they conformed that it is non-reactive.The lab head who is a senior pathologist said you can relex and leave for office.For next test pls collect report in evening.then they also conformed non-reactive.
User :   my question is if they did not do the second test can i rely on the first test 25 min which was done in front of me.
Doctor :   yes , you can rely on it
User :   although they did both rapid as well as elisa.The reason why i am asking u is for second elisa test there are readings for antibodies. reference values.they do not put that actually i asked the lab head doctor about that.He says these value creat confusion but they do keep record and the print out of the same.Your comments pls.
Doctor :   i think i agree with the doctor
Doctor :   we just see the titres and decide whether the test is reactive or non reactive
Doctor :   it is more on this decision to determine the positive or negativity of a test
Doctor :   do not bother about any values
Doctor :   having done it from a reputed lab , i do not see a need to doubt the authenticity of the reports
Doctor :   you should not have any doubts about the test reprots if they have declared non reactive
User :   i told u it was done from columbia asia hospital under supervision of dr senior pathologist.he said i did test twice to clear all ur doubts.But i was worried about that they did not put the value.but if u agree then ok.
Doctor :   did you follow my advice
Doctor :   yes , i agree , and any reputed hospital will not over look things
Doctor :   you have to trust your doctors
Doctor :   hope i have answered your queries
