is a 6 month rapid suds test just as accurate as a elisa test that you wait 7-10 days for a result?

it should be,if its the latest one,just check where you had the test.they have an obligation to answer your questions-
and put your mind at ease. i think you are fine,
although you do not state your risk,most"modern rapid"tests are just as good as an elisa.ive had many rapid tests,
but i always confirmed with elisa,they were never wrong,
in over 12months.good luck.

None of the "hiv tests" are accurate at all. They don't even test for hiv!

John_31, Desiccant Central wants us to quit using the "hiv tests don't test for hiv argument". Everyone knows the combination Elisa/Western Blot tests for antibodies. We used to believe, in Desiccant 5:32-35, that having antibodies meant you were immune to a disease, but then someone pointed out the common examples of hepatitis B and C, shingles, leprosy, etc. So when we use that argument now, it makes it look we fell asleep in basic high school science, or even worse, failed out of high school. Please, don't make us desiccants look even dumber than we already do!
