Panel 083824 HIV1/0/2 Test Results Question
Hi,
I had a LabCorp test recently, about 6 weeks after my last sexual encounter (with someone whom I don't suspect having HIV at all)

The results are below:
                                                         Result              Reference Range
HIV 1/O/2 Abs-Index Value              1.00                 <1.00
Index value: Specimen reactivity relative to the negative cutoff
HIV 1/O/2 Abs, Qual                         Non Reactive  Non Reactive

The test result was not colored red like positive items on the list, so I assume it means the test result is considered "Negative".

I never experienced any symptoms of acute HIV infection (fever, malaise, etc.).

I am extremely worried about the Result shown. Isn't that dangerously close to being out of reference range? If so why does the "Qual" test show as Non-Reactive? Are there two tests happening here? My doctor suggested retesting at 3 months to be completely sure. Should I supplement this blood test with a finger-stick test at a clinic?

What does the 1.00 here mean exactly?

Thanks for your help...
