greetings, and thanks very much for the great work you are doing for the world community. my question: is a elisa test result of non-reactive the same as negative. i suspect there are different terminologies amongst the medical community.
Response from Mr. Kull
Non-reactive is the more technically accurate term to describe an "HIV negative" result, meaning no antibodies to HIV were detected.
