Hello, which test you are talking off?? There are many tests for HIV like ELISA , Western blot.... Normally most laboratories express the HIV test results with Cut off 1. Above 1 means HiV positive below 1 is HiV negative , it depends on laboratory ,you consult your physician with report ,no need to repeat test.
