Accuracy of At First home test

Does anyone know how accurate the At First HIV 1/2 diagnostic test is?

It is an in vitro test on blood.

The literature say "A rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of antibody to HIV type-1 and/or type-2 in serum or plasma".

I can't find much info on the web on how accurate the At First test is compared to the OraSure which is done on saliva.

Any advice is appreciated.

Re: Accuracy of At First home test

Yup, replying to myself.

Please, someone here must have some knowledge about the home tests.

If I tested negative with an in vitro test ordered via mail, is that pretty reliable?

I took the test a full 6 months after my possible exposure.

Thanks, mojo
