Does the Home Access Kit....

pick up the vast majority of the infections by 6-8 weeks?
I am seeing/reading about tests that have to be 3rd and 4th generation tests that are considered "highly reliable" at 6-8 weeks.  Does the Home Access kit from the Home Access Company fit into this category.  I found a thread on here that stated that the Home Access kit is 2nd generation.   Does it REALLY matter?

Does the generation matter?

If you would have read the insert of the Home Access test it will tell you to test 3 months post exposure. At 3 months it doesn't matter what generation test it is. Most test are not classified by generation.
