Biosure 11 weeks

I took a biosure hiv test at 11 weeks with negative result, how accurate is the test at 11 weeks? Do I need to test again in one week? Regards

Hi AC76, A negative result at 81 days is a very good indication of a negative status however I would always recommend to retest again in a couple of days (after 12 weeks since your possible exposure) just to be certain. As the BioSure test is only conclusive after this 12 week window period. I hope this information helps. Kindest regards, Becky

Thanks Becky, in order to get a conclusive results I’ve bought 2 more kits, the one at 81 days is negative I think I can be confident I’m negative

Hi AC76, The accuracy of the BioSure test does not change. A negative result at 11 weeks is a very good indication of a negative HIV status. However, since the test looks for antibodies only, you would always need to retest 12 weeks post exposure for a conclusive result. I hope this information helps.
