Brief Answer:
You are free from HIV infection.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome back once again.
Thank you for posting your query.
Yes, it is very much conclusive. 4th generation HIV test is highly reliable and it ruled out HIV by two means. The absence of both antibodies and antigen for HIV, 12 weeks after exposure clearly ruled out HIV beyond any doubt. Your results are conclusive and confirmatory. Forget that incident.
