When reading the results, ensure that there is a red line on the “C” portion of the assay to guarantee the validity of the test. If there is no line at the “C” portion of the assay, please contact us.
The “T” portion of the assay indicates the test results. If a red line is present on “T”, the test indicates HIV a positive result. If a red line is not present, the test indicates a negative result.
Two complete lines, even if the line is faint, means you may be HIV positive. If your test result is HIV positive please do not panic. There is good treatment for HIV in Hong Kong. You will need to go to a doctor for a confirmation blood test. Please contact AIDS Concern by telephoning 23946677.
