The HIV Multispot is typically used as a confirmatory test for people who have received a positive result from an HIV screening.  This test detects and identifies antibodies which a person's body develops in response to infection.  The Multispot test has replaced the Western Blot as the HIV confirmatory test of choice.  This test has a higher level of accuracy than the Western Blot and is able to detect recent HIV infections up to 7 days sooner.  The Multispot test is highly sensitive and able to differentiate between HIV-1 and HIV-2.

The HIV Multispot test will be detectable for most people around 4-6 weeks after a potential exposure.  In some people it may take up to 3 months to be detectable.
