understanding my test
      #134474 - 02/15/05 04:48 AM

maybe someone can help me clear things up. i tested negative on MEIA. when i received the results it said submission type: A
when giving me the sheet they never explained it to me what that means. now i am wondering if 'submission type' stands for blood type. as far as i know my blood type is 0 and not A. so i am afraid of a lab error, maybe they mixed up tubes and tested someoneelse's blood.
i would really appreciate someones help on it.

i had MEIA antibody test which is almost the same as ELISA. no Western blot because MEIA was negative.
