Hi. I had a potentially risky contact on 24th August and I'm planning to have a Vİdas Duo Ultra test next week (23rd day after contact.) will that be conclusive?

Hi there,

This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.

I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

That is a 4th generation HIV antigen/antibody combination test.

That is very sensitive about 97% at 3 weeks.

I will not say conclusive though.

Another test after 8 weeks of exposure is still recommended.

You should have considered post exposure prophylaxis if that was a high risk exposure.

Best wishes,

It was my pleasure to help you today.
