Duo test

Jun 26, 2013

Does all duo test or 4th generation test can detect all subtypes and strains of HIV 2 like A and B?..I did my test after 13 weeks, it was negative for HIV 1 and 2. Would it be conclusive also for HIV 1 and 2?

Response from Dr. Wohl

The answer to your question is yes. The test detected these subtypes and HIV-2. DW
