PCR Testing please help me.
There is something fishy about the hiv testing methods. There is wide spread knowledge that technology has advanced to an extent that it is now possible to know your status 10days after exposure. My question is why is their low approval rate for new methods of knowing you status that early.

I already know the answer i would get from this forum if i ask about the accuracy of my PCR test results 3weeks post exposure. The question is what has been the error rate for PCR that has warranted this low approval rating? How many people have tested positive at 90 days after testing negative using the PCR method at 2 to 3weeks post exposure period? How early Can HIV be detected in blood using PCR?

Yes, i can understand your concern because it is somewhat confusing but any hiv test,for example PCR or p24combo-DUO although may shorten the window period,they all must be followed up by an antibody test at 3 months post-exposure.No hiv test is 100% conclusive until then.
