PCR Qualitative test


Ok so after a what's is known as a low risk exposure
I had a pcr qualitative hiv test at day 26. It was done in a well trusted lab in South Africa. They took 2 tubes of blood, apparently they do the test and then re-do it on the other blood sample. The results came back negative.

Please could u inform me if this is a good sign?
Been looking on the net and seems hey say it's very sensitive and accurate.

Please could u tell me your feeling
