HIV Antibody Test
The Antibody Test is a third generation test that tests for HIV antibodies. This test is the standard test offered by many sexual health clinics.
Antibodies are produced by the body in response to disease. If you have been infected with HIV, your body will produce antibodies to try to fight the infection. These antibodies can be detected through testing after 3 months, by the means of a blood sample.
Better2Know no longer offer this test as there is a better option for you. The HIV Duo 28 day test looks for the p24 antigen, as well as the antibodies that the 90 day test looks for, therefore making the Duo test more accurate. By having the Duo test, you no longer have to wait the agonising 3 months before you have the test, and have the peace of mind to be tested only 28 days after the incident.
