No listing that suggest recommended testing beyond 6 months. CDC guidlines are 3-6 months unless clinical indication or personal concerns are expressed. There are documented cases that have taken longer than 6 months but these cases are considered rare. Rare DO NOT mean zero.
As far as trying to attack me, Did your mom take 10 years to hatch you. And why do you try to use this bb to rule out everything but what you want to hear. RevAnn presented a link to a training manual that I assume refer to the 3 months as being conclusive. I'm going to do one better If you want to use the CDC as a guidline. Call them and ask them under what conditions would they suggest testing beyond 12 months. Nothing is written in stone with this virus. While the tests have improved over the years, the biological aspects are still a limiting factor. Not everyone will produce enough antobodies at 6,8,or 12 months. Thats the bottom line. If you want to dispute that go right ahead, but this site unlike most have a resourse of people who will tell you upfront that it took them longer to seroconvert.
