Not sure about indeterminant, but non-reactive usually means that it was not a positive reactive for HIV antibodies, you may want to check with the lab or call a hotline

Non-reactive is the same as a negative. Indeterminate means that the test was not clearly negative or positive. When someone has an indeterminate a second test is run with the Western Blot. If the Western Blot comes back non-reactive then the test is considered negative. If the test comes back indeterminate then a second test is recommended after waiting a few months.
