Abbott ARCHITECT HIV Ag/Ab Combo assay Accuracy
      #256760 - 07/27/11 10:47 AM

Hi, all. I had an exposure June 25 and ran across this particular 4th generation test that was approved by the FDA in 2010. I am not sure about the accuracy of it. I took an HIV test at 19 days and it was negative. I know that it is not conclusive, so I am looking to take a test at the 6 week mark that will be more accurate than the antibody test..

I need advice on this tests accuracy. thanks so much in advance

The last I knew the FDA requires a 96% accuracy rating or better on any HIV test. Although for the last decade or so the accuracy of these tests has been at 99.98%. There fore when you test for your HOTEL room massacre exposure I hope you believe the results and get off the bandwagon.

Es uno de los mejores reactivos.
con ese mismo se detecto la cepa N del paciente que volvio de togo a los 8 dias de la exposicion.
