Home Access Accuracy
Mar 7, 2002
I have a question about the Home Access tests. About three weeks after a low risk exposure, I tested negative using Home Access. While I plan to get tested again in 7 or 8 weeks, I just wondered if that result is somewhat accurate so I can make it through until I test again. Thank you.
Response from Mr. Kull
HIV antibody testing is not accurate when performed within the window period. Home Access testing, which is performed with 1st generation antibody assays, is not accurate unless three months have elapsed since your last exposure.
For specific information about the product, see the Home Access website.
