What is this type of HIV test? and how accurate?

Jul 26, 2013

Hello Dr,

I got tested for hiv a while back and it says on the paper: "IMMUNODOSAGE I (RIA - EIA) HIV 1 p24 Ag + HIV 1+2 Ac.. NEGATIF" What generation does this test belong to, and how accurate is it.. Note that i took this test 11 weeks after possible exposure..

Thank you in advance.

Response from Dr. Wohl

Looks like a combination antibody and p24 antigen test. Immunodosage is French for immunoassay. This test should be very accurate.
