Hello Rickychandra, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
The HIV Ag / Ab combo test using the CMIA method is basically used to detect specific antigens and antibodies to HIV, especially in the window period (the period when antibodies have not formed completely). The results of these tests are generally in the form of numbers, which are the result of a comparison between the reactions that occur in the test with the examination control values. The value that is said to be reactive is if the ratio (comparison) shows the same number or greater than 1.0. If the number is below 1.0, then it can also be referred to as nonreactive.
Reactive and non-reactive itself is generally used to indicate whether the material used in the test device reacts or not with the examination material (generally blood), when it reacts, it is said to be reactive whereas if it does not react it is said to be non-reactive. In an HIV test that gives results in the form of a reactive or non-reactive statement, it can generally also be said to be positive for HIV infection if it shows a reactive result, and vice versa if it shows a non-reactive result.
If there is anything that is still unclear about the results of your examination, and what you should do next after getting the results as you attach above, you should discuss them further with your doctor.
