I know the generation 4 tests for Antibodies and Antigens. But I'm just wondering is the antibody portion of the generation 4 test any better than the generation 3 test? Or is the generation 4 test simply a generation 3 antibody test with a antigen test?

Hi there,

Thank you for choosing the AIDS Vancouver Helpline as your source of information.

The antibody portion of the 4th Generation COMBO/DUO test is the same as that in the 3rd Generation tests (not worse or better). As you speculated, the 4th Generation is simply a 3rd Generation test, but with antigen component added to it (making it more accurate).

In health,
