    I’m just wondering what the chances of a false positive are. It’s great that this is finally available.

    False positives are about one in 5,000. They have a 24/7 counseling line and if positive I’d imagine that the counselor would advise getting confirmation with a blood sample. I’m pretty sure any treatment protocol would not begin without thorough testing.

    The concern that many of us have is that the possibility of extreme reactions. Many of us who are positive at least had someone there to tell us in a way that we did not do something radical. The home test takes that away. Even with a very small number of false positives, are we going to see an increase in the numbers that will “end it all”.. Concern.

    What about false negatives? This test told me I was clear as a bell, so I guess those 20+ years of anti-virals resulting in an “undetectable” reading are validated. Stop the presses.

    This test should net Big Pharma another few billion$ through clever exploitation.
