The number to call is 1-800-584-8183 about the conclusive 28 day dna pcr. they also do the regular elisa. i got the number from the cdc. the rep their said the test is conclusive after 28 days but it could pick up hiv as early as six days. just as someone could test positive on the 3rd generation elisa's after 3 weeks.

Thanks, great info! These guys have excellent councelors and they have testing labs all over the nation. They confirmed that a PCR DNA at 4 weeks is 99.9% conclusive, so it is great for people who cannot handle the 3/6 months wait.
I asked them about the percentage of false positive results and the answer was: close to none at 4 weeks post exposure.
