oraquick advance oral mucosal transudate
Jun 10, 2012
hello doctor.one time the doctor robert j frascino said me that the oraquick advance that
uses the oral mucosal transudate doesn't gives "false negative" result,but can gives,
(sometime),only "false positive" result,when instead a person is not infected by the
aids.especially when there is a normal line next the c letter and a very faint line next the
t letter.so every negative result is a "true negative" result.i hope you can confirm this
fact,because i have done 3 oraquick advance test using my oral mucosal transudate,at one
year from the sexual exposure,and they all result "negative".in this way i am sure that i
can stay in peace of mind regarding the aids.thank you for your kindly reply. god bless you. firstname.lastname@example.org
Response from Dr. McGowan
Yes, Dr Frascino was correct. The Oraquick Advance test may produce a "false positive" test on occasion, but "false negative" tests would be very rare. As long as the test is run properly and the line next to the C (for "control")is there, the results of a negative test are extremely reliable. Especially since you have had 3 negative tests, that multiplies the likelihood that the test is truly negative.
