"Most people infected with most strains of HIV, including non-B strains, will have a positive ELISA, followed by a positive Western BLot. Patients with HIV-2 will have a positive ELISA screening test for HIV antibodies and a negative or indeterminate western blot; in such cases, performance of an HIV-2 western blot is appropriate.

Patients with Group O ('O' stands for 'Outlier', and 'M' stands for 'Main') or non-clade B M strains of HIV-1 may have falsely negative ELISA screening tests for HIV. Additional antibody testing can be done via the US CDC (see Jaffe reference below) in the event of a high index of suspicion on clinical or epidemiologic grounds for HIV infection in regions of highly prevalent non-B clades, as in Asia or Africa."
Dr Renslow Rogers . Taken from a question here at the Body.
