Test accurate after 9 years?

I have tested multiple times with biosure all negative. The given sensitivity of the test is 99.7%. Does this accuracy change in relation to the number of years from exposure? Would a test taken 9 years after exposure be as accurate as a test taken 1 year after exposure, thus still be 99.7% sensitivity?

Hi Staf. The accuracy will not change in relation to years as the antibodies will be present in the blood sample on both occasions. I hope this helps. Kindest regards Francesca Bard, BioSure (UK) Ltd
