Hi haiz;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Normally the HIV test is done on the same day I can't figure why there should be a delay of 2 days.Although if the test is done with your blood sample and if it is preserved properly the result should not be affected but as for reliability it is necessary to be done in a reputed laboratory so that the laboratory can be trusted.
