Tridot Hiv Test
Hiv infection is caused by a retrovirus....This retrovirus binds to CD4 cells (for the most part). You may detect the virus by several different methods. An elisa test (enzyme linked immunosorbent assay). You may also detect it by doing a test referred to as a western blot (a gel protein electrophoresis). Thirdly by pcr (polymerase chain reaction) which ...Read more
I did 4th Generation HIV test after around 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14, 15 weeks of an exposure. Is this 100% conclusive? Can I get back safely to my wife
Sero-conversion: The whole concept of delayed sero-conversion dates back to old & sloppy tests. PCR testing now will show virus in the blood with or without antibodies. If you need to cling to the old adages...at 6 months. 99.99% of the population will have developed antibodies after an exposure. Thus the 6 month window. I believe a colleague of mine Lyssette Cardona, MD is in Dubai. She's one of the best!!
I received blowjob from unknown status of person and got tested with tridot HIV test after 60 days it came negative, is 60 days is enough time or not?
I got tested of HIV after 60 days through HIV tridot test nd came negative. My risk exposusre was receiving blowjob from unknown guy. Do I test again?
HIV is Hard to Get: Unless you have another exposure the answer is not going to change. I do not understand why you are asking this question more than once. You cannot get HIV from receiving a blow job.
Hiv test came negative after 62 nd 84 days with tridot method of HIV. My activity was received blowjob from unknwn status of person. Can I rely on this?
Yes: You don't get HIV from getting a blowjob.
Probably not: There are at least 20 different HIV blood tests in use around the world, with different cut-off values for positive results. For most or all, 1.0 is negative. Since you know the specific number, you must have a written report; it should provide that information for your test. If it does not, or if you don't understand it, contact the doctor, clinic or laboratory where the test was done.
Yes, but...: ...enough time must have passed since the last possible exposure. The laboratory blood tests all are conclusive within 6-8 weeks, and the 4th generation ("duo", "combo") tests at 4 weeks. The oral fluids home test takes longest of all, up to 3 months to be conclusive. So if you are concerned about a recent exposure, best to go to a doctor's office for proper counseling and testing.
HIV: The new 4th generation testing for antibodies is incredibly accurate by 10-12 weeks, but there is always that rare individual who has delayed antibody response and may not be positive for up to 6 mos. If one wishes to be certain they can undergo pcr for hiv-rna ($$$) which is definitive within 2-4 weeks or earlier.
Yes, but...: It's a good test, but has a lower sensitivity than standard tests, meaning that there can be false negatives. As with any rapid test, false positives can also occur. Following the instructions very carefully will help reduce the chances of a false negative test. Any positive test should be confirmed with a standard test.
There are several ways to detect the HIV virus. The first is by antibodies. This includes eia (enzyme immuno assay). The rapid HIV tests are these types. The second way detects proteins on the viral coat (western blot). This is a gel plate electrophoresis. Thirdly there is pcr (polymerase chain reaction). This detects and amplifies dna allowing a viral ...Read more
