6 weeks is around 99% accurate with an antibody test.

Hi when you say an antibody test or DUO what does this mean, I have a possible infection on the 29th of dec and have had alll the symptoms. But came up negative 5weeks on a home Rapid test (blood) yesterday.

An antibody test just looks for antibodies.A DUO test looks for both antibodies and p24 antigen.5 weeks is great,12 weeks is final.
