HIV and AIDS
What Does Quot: Negative Mean?
In my HIV test was written: RESULT: NEGATIVE QUOT:NEGATIVE
What`s the meaning of "QUOT:NEGATIVE"? Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
I`m sorry for the delay in answering this. I have consulted several colleagues. We are uncertain as to the meaning of QUOT:NEGATIVE. My thought is that this is a control test. If this is important to you, you could call the company or lab that did the test to get the answer. The HIV test was negative, in any event.
