HIV Tests

HIV – Comprehensive Testing

The HIV-DUO tests for HIV 1 and 2 Antibodies and the p24 antigen which gives earlier diagnosis. Results are available quickly. The test normally becomes positive from four weeks after contact.

If the initial test is positive we will go on to confirm the result using three independent techniques and if these are positive we will review you in Surgery and refer to an HIV Specialist.

If the earlier diagnosis is necessary, the HIV-1 proviral DNA test can be done from day 10 post exposure but the test will only apply to HIV-1 infection.

To confirm all negative results patients are advised to retest at 3-6 months time.
