To the anon who posted in my original post or to Douche-

Where did you pull that info regarding the test lines showing after 1 hour? It the person who toold me to report it to the CDC. You say that after 1 hour the lines on the test become visable, the reason I wan't to se that is because it was later we saw the pos line. Please respond back I would love to read that info.

Douche- I called you out on this, you seem to be able to find anything.

Sorry for my typos I'm all excited that maybe this is what happened. I was there for a long time and if this is true maybe this is the reason we saw the faint line.

The test should not be read after one hour. This link is to an article from last December that covers the high rate of false postives. Many testing sites pulled this test because of that.

Thank you for the info, I looked at the article and I'm aware of the false positive problem. What I wanted to see is the paragraph where it states that if you look at the test past the window period of 20 minutes both lines become visable. I do thank you for taking the time to post that thread it's just not the one I was looking for.

A easy and quick search is all you needed to do to get the information you are looking for.

From: http://www.orasure.com/uploaded/346.pdf?134&sec=2&subsec=2

Page 9 - Limitations of the test. - #2

"Reading test results earlier than 20 minutes or later than 40 minutes may yield erronous results.

[quote]Pinky,

What the? huhn? Wasn't me. I know nothing about the rapid HIV tests. Never took one. They are not even legal in Canada (yet at least). They are too worried about people getting a positive rapid test and then blowing their brians out if they don't get adequate conselling. Funny, how they don't seem to worry about people with undiagnosed illnesses blowing their brains out... but that's another thread altogether.

The only HIV test in Canada is the ELISA blood test or the PCR.

My only suggestion to you at this point is to start looking into other medical conditions.

Good Luck! [/quote]

Rapid tests are legal in Canada. There was an Ora-quick kiind of test in use until 2002, but it was pullled off the market due to false negatives. Currently the third generation Insti rapid HIV test (developed in Canada) is approved for use by Health Canada.

Did you read the instruction pamplet from orasure? You're answer is there, why are you asking again.

According to manufacturer of the test, anything after 40 minutes can cause an errounous results.

If you read your result after 40 minutes than you can't trust the results. Doesn't matter if it was 45 minutes or 45 days. The results can't be trusted.

They don't give you anything regarding the test where I went.
Would have been nice to look at if they offer something like that.

Pinky,
Go to: http://www.orasure.com/uploaded/398.pdf?138&sec=2&subsec=2
Read the bottom of page 8 under "Limitations of the Test", look at number 2. There you go! I hope this helps...

You probably need to download a newer version of Acrobat Reader. You have to have that in order to read a PDF. Do a search for Adobe Acrobat Reader and download it.

She's already been told that several times. Read the thread. She's been given the same info twice, if not three times.
