I have done HIV 1 & 2 (ELFA) test at India location (Apollo Hospital), on 37th day after exposure. Result is "Non-Reactive".

My questions:

1. Is "ELFA" test 3rd generation test or 4th generation test ?
2. How much is the window period for ELFA test ?
3. Do I need to go for HIV test again?

there are no tests approved to give a conclusive result earlier than 3 months post exposure.
