rna pcr test

Apr 18, 2012

Is an rna pcr test reliable after 18 days post possible exposure?

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi, Yes it is. It is not generally ran due to the expense of the test but it is accurate as it is picking up the actual virus and the HIV test done by oral or blood is picking up the body making antibodies against HIV.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
