Hiv risk & testing

Had a low risk incident.   Wondering what you would feel they accuracy of an Alere  rapid antibody/antigen test at 28 days.  Have seen some of these doctors old posts say they were very close to accuracy of a lab based test.

Getting tests done at a lab is always preferable. At 28 days they are "almost" conclusive, But some, including me, always advise testing at 12 weeks post exposure too for a conclusive result.

Will you tell us what your low risk exposure was ?

Then you didn't have a risk and do not need to test.

I'm sorry, I don't know what you mean by "theater".

All you need to know is that you are SAFE.
You had NO RISK.
