Bear in mind that anyone can post information online -- true or not -- and it seems unlikely that the mode of exposure would alter its detection or timeline. Studies have shown that HTLV's and other viruses don't replicate in plasma and it's implausible that a pharmaceutical company would bottle and sell potentially infectious products. Since you work in a medical facility, your best bet would be to rely on the advice you've received.
Thanks for your response. It is comforting to know that mode of exposure should not alter the timeline.
The product I cut myself with is not a pharmaceutical product though, it is a standard used in experiments and is NOT designed to be injected/used by humans, but merely as a reference in assays. This is why I am concerned as perhaps the guidelines are not as strict as an actual pharmaceutical product Safety.
Just an update, tested negative with 4th generation antibody/antigen test at 42 days (6 weeks) post exposure.
Does anyone else have amy thing to add? How accurate is this 4th gen test at 6 weeks? I will update this with my 12 week results when I get them
Further update: tested negative at 82 days post exposure. I can finally put this past me thanks for the support in the meantime
