Hi there,

Thanks for contacting AIDS Vancouver for HIV/AIDS-related information.

The ECLIA test is a very advanced HIV test. Most HIV specialists consider it to be conclusive at 6 weeks. There are still some places where that test is not available, and so the global recommendation is still 12 weeks. I'd consider your test results a very good indication that you are HIV negative. Most people who become HIV positive develop detectable antibodies in 21-25 days and up to 95% of infections are detectable within 4-6 weeks. So the chances of the test finding HIV antibodies at 10 weeks are very good. Follow up with one more test at or after the 12 week period to be completely sure if you are still concerned.

All the best
