Automated M. E. I. A. (Axsym)

I tested negative using the Method : Automated M. E. I. A. (Axsym) which tests for both HIV1 and HIV2.

The test was done at 86 days post exposure.

1) Is this is a Rapid Test

2)Is this is a reliable and conclusive test?

Thanks

Hi

Do you mean after 12 weeks (84 days) or after 90 days?

Thanks mate.

Do you recommend me to re-test after 90 days?

Last test was at 86 days.

This is my final question in this thread.

Do rapid tests give a result in terms of reactiveness? Else how do rapid tests work.
