test length

I might decide to take medschool actually, its quiet interesting. One question about the tests.

How long does a western blot take to bring results as opposed to a rapid test or ELISA. I mean does it take more days for the result to come?

Thanks

rapid test takes about 30 mins or less..
Elisa and Wb will take much longer depending on the lab..
hope you know Wb is a confirmatory test not a diagnostic test..
