1st verse 3rd Gen test? NY?

Question,
Is NY using the first or third generation of the Elisia Tests? What does 30 days Negative mean?
Thanks

If you were tested via a private lab you may want to call them and confirm which gen they use but if you tested at a public clinic (Chelsea, GHMC) they use a 3rd gen.

A 30 day negative means that at 30 days antibodies were not detected. It's a good sign, but certainly not conclusive.

Don't worry about which test it is, it doesn't matter. While the 3rd generation picks up antibodies about a week sooner than the 1st generation in the earlier period of the window, by 3 months both tests will be conclusive.

Thank you for the information, but I will still be on pins and needles for some time to come. Thanks again
