Roche or Vidas?

i have a question about Hiv Duo Tests.I had a hiv duo test at 4 weeks(1 day short) and found out from the Dr in the lab that it was done by the ROCHE manufacturer.

i have read about Vidas and Abott also.

which is a better and reliable company?

i was reading this and it confused me about hiv duo tests.please have a look at the link posted below.
