Is hiv 1 RNA qualitative PCR after 8 months gives 100 per accuracy r not

Hi

We find that the NAAT/RNA test that looks for the genetic material of HIV in the blood is about 90% accurate after 10 to 12 days and would give you a final result at 6 weeks. Given you had a test at 8 months you would have a final HIV 1 result. We even find the 3rd generation antibody test and the 4th generation antigen/antibody test would give you a final result by 3 months.

Let us know if this did not answer your question or if you have any other questions or concerns.
