HIV Antibody Test

This is the usual HIV antibody test which many NHS GUM clinics offer. It is a third generation test.

An antibody is the immune system's response to disease. If you have been infected with HIV, your body will produce antibodies which are typically detectable through testing after three months.  A blood sample is needed for the test.

Better2Know no longer performs the 90 day test, as it is no longer the best test we can offer you. We offer the HIV Duo 28 day test which tests for everything which included in this 90 day test as well as the p24 antigen.  Therefore the Duo test is a more accurate test, 

If you have been advised to retest in three months time, then Better2Know suggests our 28 day HIV test as the most appropriate test for you.
