Third Generation Elisa

Is the Third Generation Elisa an antibody test?

Who would give these tests?

Is it different from a normal antibody test?

The third generation ELISA is the most recent antibody test, and is more sensitive than first or second generation tests. With every generation is improvement. I don't know if every lab uses the third generation, but a lot of them do.

Hi Joe, according to my friends over at the GMHC, this is the best antibody test you can take. You can take your 12 week negative test to the bank. == PVS
