Windows period

I just wanted to clear something up and apologies if this has already been answered but I couldn’t find it.
Is the window period 84 or 90 days?
Which one is conclusive?
Thank you,

Hi Alpha Thanks for your questions. The scientific data that has been generated has all been presented as a number of days, so 84 days or 12 weeks. But we say 3 months just to make it easy for potential testers to calculate the end of the window. For example, 14th February exposure, implies the end of the window period on the 14th May. I hope that this answers your question. Kind regards Gary Carpenter BioSure (UK) Limited
