negative test result (NEH-guh-tiv ... reh-ZULT)
|A test result that shows that a person does not have the disease, condition, or biomarker for which the test is being done. A negative test result usually means that the test result is normal, but it does not mean that a person will never get the disease or condition. More testing may be needed to make sure a negative test result is correct.|
