thanks, lab uses determine/tridot in that country, so i have brought the same kit determin and solution, they have shown me how to use.
Only difference is they remove blood from vain and i remove from finger.
Lab medical told, if control line appears that means test is ok, if control lines doesnot appear it means testing is invaild.
Sorry myself testing neg on 13 week neg.

Wb indeterminate usually turns out to be a negative. Was it the lab who did the Wb and why are they not following up with you after your indeterminate result or did they?
