    Improper procedure of conducting HIV Alere HIV Combo

    This doctor that I saw (not from DTAP) did not follow the correct procedure of carrying out the HIV 4th generation antigen/antibody test. The test used is Alere HIV Combo (I saw the cover). Firstly, he did not use wipes to clean my finger before carry out hand prick. Secondly he did not use a tube to collect my blood but instead place my finger on the pad. thirdly, the blood used was not from second drop onwards. May I know if it will cause false negative results?
