Your Billing Information:
SimpleSTDTesting, asks for minimum amount of information that is absolutely vital to process your payment using debit or credit card. All the information so collected is encrypted and then, transmitted straight to your credit/debit card company, and we have no means of accessing such information. Therefore, we do not sell or trade in your billing information with third parties.
We do not discount any minor error or failure in our in-house laboratory testing, and the error-standards are akin to any standard laboratory. Although, we take ample precautions and measures to avoid such errors, yet some minor errors have to be taken into account while relying on the tests.
False negative results could imply either the person is infected but his/her body has not yet produced the appropriate indicators, or your body is producing the appropriate indicators but for some reason the test failed to detect it.
False positive results imply that the person tested positive for the appropriate indicators, when in fact, he/she is negative.
Errors could also occur due to broken test tubes, lost specimens, etc.
