Your result could be indeterminate if: A negative result does not exclude the possibility of covid.
My test result says “not detected”.
What does not detected mean on a covid test cdc. Laboratory alert after december 31, 2021, cdc will withdraw the request to the u.s. Surveillance testing is primarily used to gain information at a population level, rather than an individual. Even though your test right now says the virus was “not detected”, it is possible that you could test positive later.
An alert from the centers for disease control and prevention (cdc) in america announcing that it will withdraw the request for emergency authorisation of a pcr test has been widely shared on social media in the uk, and claimed to be evidence that the tests have “failed their full review”, and that pcr tests are “meaningless”, “fraudulent”, “not fit for purpose”, or unable to distinguish between. That means the cdc wrote out directions specifying which reagents were needed to test the laboratory samples for the presence of the covid virus. • a negative antigen test does not definitively rule out infection with the virus.
This could be for many different reasons, such as you were tested early in your infection. The cdc does not distribute covid tests. A positive nat does not necessarily mean that a patient is infectious, as viral rna can be shed in the respiratory tract for weeks but cultivatable (live) virus is typically not detected beyond 8 to 10 days after symptom onset.
Viral rna is not detected in the sample. What does it mean if i have a not detected (negative) test result? However, it is still possible that you may be infected, but are too early in the course of your illness to test
Detection of viral rna does not. That is honestly the best they can say.have to leave the possibility open that there is virus just not detected. However, it is possible for this test to give a negative or not detected result that is incorrect (false negative) in some people with.
However, a negative result does not. Thus, the facebook posts’ assertions that the test cannot differentiate between covid and flu is. Indeterminate means that the test did not detect a clear positive or negative result.
Especially with the self administered tests i think results can be false negatives.having had two of these i can't imagine put it up there far enough on my own to get a good result. Not detected is what many test results say. If you test negative, you probably were not infected at the time your sample was collected.
What do i do if my antigen test is negative? There was a problem with the sample you provided or the test. All of this means the cdc’s test would not erroneously detect flu viruses.
Continue to take steps to protect yourself.
