Test turnaround time?
      #207811 - 09/20/06 08:46 AM

How long does it take to get HIV test result back in the U.S. I don't know if anyone is familiar with Quest Diagnostic. That is the company used. What is the general waiting time? Thanks so much.

[quote]it will vary each time ya test, simply because they send em out to the lab, which does 1000's of others daily, so depending on how busy they are directly affects the turnaround time of results.

they dont put a "rush" on it, just cuz its yours and you are worried. you go in the order recieved, and your appropriate procedures to yield results....thats just how it is....it will vary though, each and everytime.

even with rapid 20 minute tests, it may only take 20 mins to achieve results, but it could be half hour, 45 minutes, if the lab is busy, before they can relay those results to you....Good Luck & God Bless* [/quote]
