1) How likely is it the first test was a false negative?
The first test was positive – I don’t understand your question?
2) Is the Quest test as good as the WB?
Not in the opinion of all the herpes experts, no.
3) If it’s not, how do I get a WB? I can’t find a place to do them. I don’t know what the difference is.
You can work through me to get the blot – this is not a test you can order yourself. They are done with totally different techniques. For them to say it is better than the western blot is quite a misleading statement. You should order the kit from the University of Washington at 206-685-6066 and then work through you own provider or work through me. We know labs in your area that can draw your blood, usually.
