CMIA Test Result: Non Reactive (0.10)

Question: 

HI,
I'm male of 34 years age. I had sex with some unknown girl whom I met online on Jan 20. Initially I didn't wear condom for may be around 1 min and then later on I used condom and had sex. I had tridot test multiple times 4 weeks, 90 days, 104 days and 5.5 months after the exposure. All the results came back negative or non-reactive. Today I had CMIA test (its exactly 6 months today) and the resume is Non-reactive (0.10).
Result says non-reactive but my concern is about the 0.10 mentioned in the parenthesis.
I'm really going crazy with the results. Can you please confirm if the CMIA test result non-reactive is conclusive and if yes, what does this 0.10 means.

Please help me...

Answer: 

Hi there thanks for contacting us with your questions!

I'm happy to let you know that your HIV tests are negative! Congratulations!

Non-reactive means that you are indeed HIV negative, there was no HIV detected in your body. The 0.10 is a technical term about the assay and would take a molecular biology course to explain! there's no need to worry about this number, it is just a detail about how the assay works. all that matters is your test was non-reactive, so you're HIV negative.

I hope this helped!

Sincerely,

Christina
