Do you understand the difference? By your question, I guess you don't.

Just to make it easier on myself I'll post a response from GMan from 2 posts down.

Quoting.

The first and second gen tests are still being used because they are plentiful and inexpensive, and yes there have been enough research and consistency tests on the first gen tests to show they are accurate, consistent and conclusive for detecting at or before the 6 week mark with les than .01% false positives. There has never been a problem with them giving false negatives. All of this information has been gone over many times in these boards for many years but it seems that people lately think that they are the only person going through the window period and there situation is exclusive. Even though none of us get paid to help in here I guess we are expected to be the secretary and go track down all the information and do the research which is readily available in these posts back on the board and in the reading sections in the HIV websites which it seems no one will read or they do not want to understand what is in them.

So that is why they use the 2nd generation tests
