How to get tested?
The immune system of newly HIV-positive people begins to produce antibodies, the presence of which can be detected by means of a blood test. HIV antibodies are found in the blood within 12 weeks of exposure to the virus.
There are various detection methods available. The 4th generation proofs used by Biron reduce the minimum time between exposure and the test to 14 days. Laboratories using 3rd generation tests can only detect HIV 6 to 12 weeks after probable exposure.
