Hello Dr. Bob,
I had an Hiv-1 EIA antibody test back in 2006 that was negative. My question is should I get a test now because they are now using the ICMA test, Is the EIA and ICMA test equally accurate? Thank you for answering.
Response from Dr. Frascino
No need to repeat your HIV-antibody test. The EIA and ICMA are equally accurate and equally valid.
