It depends on the lab how long it takes to get your results back from an ELISA test. It can take from hours to up to 2 weeks to get your test results.
I'm aware. I also intend to have a 3 month antibody test when the time comes. I was only asking about the result times.
Thanks. Posted that not knowing you had replied again.
