a rapid test gives results in 20 minutes.
the amount of time that you get the results from a standard antibody test depends solely on the lab.
which one is more reliable do you think a standard antibody test or a rapid test?
no my point is which one does give early indication of the presence of antibody?
neither are conclusive until 3 months post exposure.
so will the same antibody hiv1 and hiv2 test 3 months post exposure be conclusive?
ELISA is the antibody test used,its not a rapid test and takes time, how ever there are several rapid tests in the market and gives results almost in less than ten minuites, all antibody tests are very accurate, ELISA is a older version very reliable probably yours was elisa
no my question will the same antibody hiv1 and hiv2 test 3 months post exposure be conclusive?
the rapid test is an elisa.
YOU HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT AN ELISA TEST IS CONCLUSIVE 3 MONTHS POST EXPOSURE.
