Brief Answer: Indicates HIVfree.Confirmatory with another test Detailed Answer: Hi, Welcome to XXXXXXX Thanks for posting your query. The test indicates that you are free from HIV 1&2. 1. The test has more vale if the test had been done after 12 weeks after the last high risk sexual activity. 2. It is more confirmatory if it is substantiated with another HIV antibody (ELISA,Rapid or Western blot test). Almost all the test are sensitive and specific up to 98% and becomes 100% sure with another test. Nothing to worry. Dr S.Murugan
