HIV Test

Posting it for second time, did mistake in the first post:

I got ECLIA 4th gen DUO test HIV-1/2, just wanted to know as I got the result on the same day should it be considered as a rapid test? Lab says that it is Standard Screening test, so Standard tests giving results in one day considered accurate? Sorry to be more specific.

Yes it is reliable and accurate. In my country, results of  an ELISA fourth generation test for HIV are available the very same day. Specimen taken in the morning and the results are ready by the evening
