I recently had an HIV DUO at around 12 weeeks minimum at one of your competitors in a street nearby, they told me that thier DUO was only around 98% accurate after 12 weeks so now i'm back to square one again with being very anxious! is your test a newer version or do you use a different system and how sure could i be of my test if i came to see you. p.s i had a neg duo at 6 weeks as well. but i've had a sore throat since about week 3 which comes and goes and my groin has recently had some swollen glands!
My risk was unprotected sex with an italian girl about 4 times.
Good morning. If you definitely had an HIV DUO test at 12 weeks then you are HIV negative - the accuracy of this test at 28 days or more is 99.89%. As time goes on and the antibody part of the test becomes more prominent then the test will increase in accuracy to 99.99 recurring. At six weeks a 4th generation ELISA antibody - which is the most likely test you had - will be 99% accurate.
Sorry for being a donut but the 4th generation antibody is that the same as a DUO? i had the one that looks for a p24 in your blood as well as the antibodies!! sorry all these different test are very confusing! and if it was the ELISA antibody is this conclusive at 3 months also??
