Efficiency of an ELISA TEST

Hi,
I've been reading and researching about anti-HIV tests and most of them says that if an ELISA test is done within 6 months of the dangerous sex relation, the test can guarantee 99,99% of efficiency. Is it possible to an ELISA test give a result with 100% of certainty?

Sorry for the bad english, I'm not from UK or USA.

Bye

A conclusive test is one that is done 3 months post exposure. Any antibody test is conclusive at this time point.
