On the aids vancouver helpline website they say that most people will have detectable antibodies between 21 to 25 days after exposure and this when using a rapid finger prick test. Does this apply to your finger prick biosure test as well? Also Is there a difference between a 2nd and 3rd generation rapid test in terms of sensitivity and reliability?
This is cut and pasted from the website regarding rapid testing.
Rapid or “Point-of-Care” Blood or oral swab test that looks for antibodies. Up to 95% of infections are detectable within 4-6 weeks post exposure. Most people develop detectable antibodies in 21-25 days.
