I am wondering about something: I have read on this forum and in many other places that an Elisa antibody test is 99 accurate after three months. But my question is this: If you test on exactly the 90th day after exposure, can you use the same conclusion? Meaning, does it have to be "some time AFTER three months" to achieve that accuracy, or can it be exactly at three months? Thanks, Appreciative reader

There is no exactness to these guidelines. These are recommended time ranges for followup testing.
