coclusive or not..

Sep 29, 2013

Hellow, shall elfa 4th gen test be consider accurate after one year of possible exposure? As p24 is almost nill in this period.. So can it be trusted.. Does it look for antibodies too..

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi Yes this test looks for antibodies as well and just as accurate. The testing guidelines are to be tested initially at 3 weeks post exposure and then again at 90 days. As long as there are no other exposures during this time the test results are conclusive.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon

just one second please..
