Hello, bagass, thanks for asking HealthReplies.com.
VIDAS HIV is one of the tools that can be used to detect HIV. VIDAS can detect the work of the immune system that is fighting a certain disease. This tool has a fairly high accuracy in detecting HIV infection. In addition to high accuracy, this tool is also easy to use in the laboratory.
VIDAS NR means Non-Reactive, which means that there are no signs of HIV infection in the body. However, talk to your doctor again about the results of this test and what steps you can take next. Because, making a diagnosis cannot only be concluded from one laboratory test result, but also must look at the patient's medical history, physical examination, and other supporting examinations. In some people who have a negative HIV test but are suspected of having HIV, retesting is often done over a period of time, because the course of HIV disease has a window-period (or window period) in which after the virus infects the body, there is a "pause" period during which the HIV test gives a result. negative, even though the person is already able to transmit HIV. So, re-confirm with your doctor about the results of this test and your overall condition.
Here is an article about HIV/AIDS, please read it for additional information. That's it, I hope it's useful.
