Combo Test and unclean tray

Dear Doctor,

I' sorry for i'am back, but please give me your advice again,

i went to reputable clinic in Jakarta Indonesia for my 36 days ( 5 weeks 1 day) ab/ag p24 combo test ,

my exposure is licking vaginal fluids on breast

and thanks GOD the result was nonreactive, all the equipment are new (cotton, band aid, needle) but what make me worries is there are drops of blood from previous patient on tray which the test equipment are placed,

1. can i get hiv if any equipment (cotton, band aid, needle) were contaminated with the blood on tray

2. can i move on with my ab/ag p24 combo test result  on 36 days ( 5 weeks 1 day)
because i have many symptoms right now like mouth ulcers and swollen pain lymphs under my jaw

i don't know maybe the ulcers it is caused my smoking habit

sorry for my poor english

Best Regards

It doesn't matter even if there was blood on the tray,it's no risk for HIV because the virus becomes inactive outside the body & can't infect you.
