Wondering

I had a recent blood test with EXAMONE and my hiv serum blood test came out negative. This at 10 weeks of possible exposure. Is this conclusive? Is the company EXAMONE reliable? Can an ars rash show up on palm of hands and top of foot after this long time?

Also they took my blood. The results just said hiv serum negative. Not sure what type of test they preformed.

PCR DNA tests are not approved to screen HIV.

Then why would it say hiv serum negative what does that mean?

How do you know an HIV test was done? Most insurance testing does not include an HIV test and when they do they are mandated to tell you verbally or in writing.

They did because i signed a consent for it . And received a brochure for it.

And your results were?

Then you are negative. Examone is a collection company they don't do the testing.
