HOME ACCESS AND TRUST

Nov 11, 2002

RYAN, WOULD YOU TAKE A HOME ACCESS TEST? DO YOU REALLY TRUST THIS TEST? IF A PERSON TESTS NEGATIVE, VIA HOME ACCESS, 3 YEARS PAST EXPOSURE, WOULD YOU SAY THAT THIS RESULT IS CONCLUSIVE?

Response from Mr. Kull

Home Access is FDA approved, as are other antibody testing methods used to screen for HIV infection in the United States. This is evidence enough that the Home Access testing system is reliable.

A negative result from the Home Access test three years after exposure is a conclusive result. Unless you are concerned about other exposures in the three months prior to the test, no other testing is necessary.
