Hi Masoud

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

HIV DUO test is a newer test which can detect both antibodies and p24 antigen.This is useful in detecting the disease even before the antibodies are formed as it will detect antigen also.
But the time of appearance of virus in body depends on the incubation period.Anyways the test is effective in detecting HIV.You should have serial check s for HIV to be sure of anything.

Good luck.
