The HIV-1, Qualitative, RNA tests for recent exposure as soon as 28 days from exposure. A typical antibody only HIV test is not able to detect infection for as long as 3 months.

HIV is an aggressive viral infection that cannot be cured. There is no vaccine to prevent this virus from affecting the lives of individuals. When it enters the body, it attacks its white blood cells and replicates itself to invade the body. Getting an early HIV RNA qualitative test is essential to detect the virus, even few days post infection. It helps screen for, diagnose, and determine the effectiveness of a given HIV treatment. 

Test results may take  2-5 business days.
