Window period for 1st generation test
Hi All

I just wanted to know

Dr Sean from HIV International community quoted

"Some laboratories are still offering 1st generation HIV tests which are thoroughly unreliable within the modern window period"

in the below thread

http://www.medhelp.org/posts/HIV---International/condom-slip-risk/show/1350061

So whats the window period for 1st generation test ? is it more than 3 months?

hey ..today i contacted with my lab where i have got tested negative before a year back after 95 days of exposer. They are saying that my result is conclusive. If u have HIV then It will easily detected within 2-3 month of exposer.If u have got negative result after 3 month u are not infected.
Pls tell me is there any possibility that my test was positive by mistake they put negative at my report.
That lab was very good and having NABL, ISO certifications.
Test only once after 3 month is Conclusive.
