What is the Early Detection Screen?

You can add on other tests to this screen at our reduced bolt-on price. If you are looking for a comprehensive screen, you may want to consider our Early Platinum Screen.

Please let the booking team know your preferred method when you make your appointment. You will also be able to track the progress of your results in your secure online Patient Area.

What if I test positive?

The Early Detection Screen is a reliable test. If you test positive, you will have found out at an early stage of infection.
