Response from Dr. Frascino
My colleagues overseas assure me the Bioline HIV third generation assays for HIV-1 and HIV-2 are very accurate and reliable.
Your negative tests at 5, 6, 7, 8, 12, 13 and 14.5 weeks are definitive, conclusive and highly excessive. All you needed was one test at the three-month mark.
