the false negatives from WA state were reported that pink smearing was
present all over paper once droppered until dry - then the control line was
present only-- According (mind you heresay again ) to Avecon the pink
should not be showing all over the paper-- ALSO this is third hand
reporting and ALL questions on the test and whether it was administered
properly should be from AVECON themselves. There has been stated numerous
times that the test is 95% accurrate - in this case reportedly (the magic
word) all saliva tests were normal however when rechecked with blood 9
were positives---

So there is much discussion as to how this many tests could possibly have
been wrong -- that is why if there is a question I tell folks to call
Avecon and report results & serial numbers on box...

I have to admit when I heard the report my heart leapt into my throat- I
just purchased $500 in kits for the shelter!
