HIV information
A positive finding should definitely be discussed with a physician. If the HIV screening test is positive, a second blood draw must be performed. Only when the HIV confirmation test from the second sample is positive is HIV infection considered confirmed.

Hepatitis C Information
The usual screening test for hepatitis C is the detection of HCV IgG antibodies in the blood. However, after infection, it may take several weeks for the test to become positive. If the screening test is positive, further confirmatory testing must be performed, such as HCV immunoblot or HCV RNA direct detection.

Syphilis information
If a person has previously had syphilis, the screening test will remain positive. Only due to the activity marker RPR can be used in such cases to distinguish whether this person currently has an active infection. Syphilis does not leave immunity. Reinfection can occur if the person comes into contact with the pathogen Treponema pallidum again.
