Common Questions and Answers about How long does the elisa test take


700452 tn?1231019772 Have no idea what test they use but it can take a matter of minutes for a Rapid test to a couple of weeks for a standard ELISA test.
Avatar m tn Dear Doctor, I had a high risk exposure 13 weeks ago and I have taken the following two tests: 4th week: HIV Antibodies I & II Result: Negative( 0.1 S/CO) 12th week: HIV Antibodies I & II Result: Negative I took these two tests from two different clinics and I am living in a city where the 4th generation of ELISA is not official licensed. Therefore the tests could best be the 3rd generation.
Avatar n tn My last unprotected intercourse with her was after my 7 weeks ELISA test negative. Question 1. My ELISA test is few drop of my bloods to the tester and the result shown in 15 mins. The test was done in a Government hospital in Indonesia. Not sure is this test kits latest and reliable? 2. Did you see any negative ELISA test at 7 weeks turn positive after 3 months? 3. Is my wife's flu like symptoms suggest ARS? Is stuffy/running nose (with some yellow discharge) ARS symptoms? 4.
Avatar f tn Even though the CDC sent my city a notice of positive lyme blood test this doctor said I was negative. How does one go up against that? I had false hope I would get treatment covered by my (nearly $400 mo) insurance coverage. I'm sticking with my out of network LLMD who has been the only one that has helped. His treatment far so good. It was rough going when he doubled my abx dose but I stuck it out and sure am glad I did.
Avatar n tn I have a fear that, there might be some fluids spilled over the bed which might cause problem. I took an elisa rapid test at two weeks 2 days that was -ve, Please help me if there is any early detection test? This is seventh week, should I take another elisa now or wait for the 12th week. I am so scared, not able sleep or concentrate on anything.
Avatar m tn well it does only take one time but the risk really is higher when it's a regular partner you have sex with regularly. at this point, confirm your infection to make sure you really do have hsv2 and go from there. why beat yourself up over who to talk to about this if you don't have to?
Avatar n tn if hcv pcr test is already negative but anti hcv elisa test is positve then is there any treatment in homeopathy which make anti hcv elisa test negative please answer to this question if anyone know about it.
280418 tn?1306329510 Thereby letting the spirochetes multiply unchecked. So I think in the short run there could be a brief period of improved symptoms. I have also read and my doctor told me about the anti-inflammatory effect of doxy. Did you by chance get worse physically after the prednisone?
Avatar m tn Your negative is very indicative. Irrespective of the generation of the test at the 6th week, a negative is very unlikely to change ahead. I promise, your 12 week's going to be another negative.
Avatar f tn you don't have hep c Either test will do as long as it is the test for the virus not the antibody. You can help resolve a fatty liver by following your doctors recommendations. If overweight or especially obese the best thing you ca do is lose weight with the long term goal to get to a normal BMI but best to ask your doctor how to proceed from here.
Avatar f tn I forgot to ask him if I take one in the morning and one at night or both in the the morning or both at night.... I've left him a message but in the mean time I thought I'd ask you guys since you seem to know lots and lots. Im nervous to take the clomid... it's my first leap into fertility treatment...(15 months ttc) but at the same time Im excited at the thought of actually ovulating. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar m tn Many other countries use other standards for diagnosing HIV. I believe UK bases it solely on the EIA/ELISA while Canada uses the ELISA and another test (not sure which one, PCR RNA?). I'm probably wrong about both of these countries but it's something like that. I suppose I'm just anxious. Anyway, from unreliable sources I've read on the internet, the HIV DNA PCR seems to have sensitivity and specificity close to that of the ELISA. In fact, it is regarded as an overly sensitive test.
Avatar f tn I went to donate blood 1/20/2014 I got a letter stating I tested repeatedly reactive for the elisa hiv test. They did a IFA confirmatory test which came back negative and also took a sample of my donation and put it with a pool of other samples for a NAAT test which also my pool came back negative or non reactive. They told me that I was not living with hiv and can come back in 6 months to try again. Now 2 weeks after I got that letter I took an oraquick home swab test which came back negative.
280418 tn?1306329510 Now this means that you have a special place here to help reinforce to people the value of knowing what is in all of you medical records. Godd job!! Also, the ELISA is meant as a screening test, with the back up of the WB. I found values all over the map for how often the ELISA gives a false positive. It varied from less than 5% to almost 30%. However, in the face of someone who has had classic neuroLyme symptoms, it has to be taken seriously.
Avatar m tn Focus Labs recommends 3-6 weeks from exposure before having a test. I have seen experts quote 12 weeks as the line of certainty and that seroconversion plateus for over 90% of the population at 10 weeks. I have also seen that a negative is a negative is a negative. I had an Elisa IGG type specific test at 12 weeks after a risky encounter with no protection. It came back negative for HSV1 at .63 and Negative for HSV2 .02. My question is if this was long enough to be certain.
Avatar m tn IF you had a possible exposure to Hiv, how long Before Tests will pick up the infection, and how accurate are the rapid Hiv tests against the Elisa tests? If you are Elisa negative at 6 weeks after infection, does this mean that you are negative?? Could anyone help with this one? I have unprotected sex on Aug 25th 2012 and i took the test on 08th Oct 2012. I just had a test and everything is normal and i am being tested negative. Here are my test results. WBC 7.
Avatar m tn Jose Gonzalez-Garcia, MD, MRCGP, PhD HIV 1 and 2 antibodies and p24 antigen test (HIV DUO or HIV Combi test) This HIV test is licensed in the EU for use after 28 days after a possible exposure. It is probably much better than this and will probably identify the majority of newly infected HIV positive individuals at between 14 and 21 days. This HIV test is referred to as a fourth generation HIV test.
Avatar m tn You need to wait at least 3 weeks from the last day of pills to test again. The tests you will take are probably a NAAT or DNA amplification test. There is no such thing as a test that is 100% accurate, but I think you are fine with whatever test they offer.
Avatar n tn 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?
Avatar m tn I did read most of the posts here and I decided to do the DNA and ELISA test based on the information that is given in the forum, that is one test looks for antibodies and the other test looks for the virus itself, I did these tests becuase I can't wait for 3 months, the stress is too much to handle and can't focus on my work. I needed some early indicator so I can make decisions. I never read about a guy that is getting married issue, here soon! i missed his post.
Avatar n tn it almost never takes 90 days, despite the fact that many official sites (and the test manufacturers themselves) say it can take that long. Certainly a relationship 12 years ago is a misplaced concern. Not only would you have a positive test result. By now you almost certainly would have been overtly sick with AIDS, possibly dead. All is well. You don't have HIV.
Avatar f tn The higher the number the more sure the test is that it saw the antibodies. Ifor your next igg test is over 3.5 then I would be inclined to believe it's hsv2. I understand your frustration on this and while hsv1 2 and shingles all respond to the same meds it doesn't mean they act the same or should be treated the same. Ugh!!
1024580 tn?1331577721 What's the best HIV Test? The best HIV test is one that provides you with an accurate and reassuring result in a time frame that suits you best. Everybody will have a different "best HIV test" because their circumstances will be slightly different. The main things to think about are firstly when you were possibly exposed to HIV and secondly how desperately you need to know the answer.
Avatar m tn He put it in as stat but the lady at the lab said there is no stat for hiv tests. How long should i expect to wait.
5248641 tn?1367590847 The LLMD said he was surprised the standard test the other doc did came back positive, because so often they don't. I was lucky. That you have specific Lyme bands is significant. Doesn't matter if it's IgG or IgM ... those are different antibodies that occur at different times in Lyme: the IgM antibody is the first one produced shortly after a Lyme infection begins, and the IgG appears later in the infection.
Avatar m tn This appeared out of the blue in June 2012 (I say out of the blue because I don't take drugs, don't smoke, don't have diabetes, didn't have chemotherapy, and didn't take medicines for long periods of time -besides 1 week of cyprofloxacin in March 2012). I had a sexual exposure in February 2012 with bizarre symptoms exactly 2 weeks later that lead me to think on HIV (a cervical swollen lymph node, neck stiffness and then an urinary track infection), but I tested negative several times.
Avatar n tn They can not give me the suggestion, that is the reasaon why I ask the help from you. I really do not know how long the test I need to take again, Please give me some advices, considering the two dose of lamivudine's effect. My additional information is the intercourse with condom, the girl is a chinese girl. I can not reassure after reading your suggestion, and I am begining to suspect this nine weeks test result now.
242985 tn?1192591669 I will take the test as soon as I get back to the US. I am on the most remote island of the Canary Islands right now, (pop. 10,000) so I´d be lucky if they even had a decent hospital. Does rapid testing require a 3 month wait as well?
Avatar n tn One week later I was retested with a BioKit and a different test offered by the same company that does Herpes Select although I do not remember the name. It only provides a positve or negative result, no IgG level. Both test were positive so I started taking Valtrex daily. I have not had any outbreaks or noticable symtoms for well over a year.
