How accurate are the HIV RNA testing

How accurate is the HIV RNA testing- heard there are quite a few false positives.

Also on average how long does it take to get results, took one today.

Teak,

After reading your previous information, I don't disagree, and I feel very confident I am fine.

I took the test just for an extra self certification. Paranoid nuts like myself sometimes can't get past it until ultimately satisfied.

In any case the question at this point was not on my exposure, just the boards experience on the HIV RNA testing.

Might be good info for others to know as well.

Thks

Michael.
