Can HIV test kit cause AIDS?
Patient: Dear doctor I was asking can I get infected with HIV through rapid test (HIV test kit) I had because the kit is not approved from FDA or CE but it is approved from UNAIDS and ISO13485 it is iCare test kit.
Doctor: Is this your first time reaching out for information about this?
Doctor: Anything else in your medical history you think I should know?
Patient: Yes, I had a intercourse from 2 years ago with cw vaginal but I used condom and I had 3 Elisa antibody tests and 2 combo test AG/AB and all turned negative but foolishly I ordered HIV test kit from nexus laboratories it was supposed to be EZ-Trust kit but they send me iCare test kit when I emailed them they said that they replaced there testing kit with iCare test kit instead of EZ-Trust kit when I was performing the test I fool pricked my finger but there was not enough blood in the plastic tube so I drawn more blood again from the pricked finger after I touched the spot of blood spot in the kit can I be infected from the kit? according to this issue I explain.
Doctor: No, you would not get infected through an HIV test.
Patient: That means that the hiv test kit can not infect me cause for my poor knowledge there is antigen in it
Patient: Even if it is not CE or FDA approved just UNAIDS approved sorry last thing is there difference between the antigen and the virus its self I mean if I contact antigen of virus that does not mean that I contact the virus right ?
Patient: So I have not contracted anything from the kit thanks doctor your the best doctor in the world 🙂
