Re: Source for 99+% accuracy claim

I assume that the 99+% accuracy of ELISA tests at detection of HIV indicates both very high specificity and very high sensitivity for this test. I also assume that there is published evidence supporting this claim, which has been touted for at least 10 years. Can anyone reference the original paper(s)?
