What is the Instant Four Screen?

Better2Know’s Instant Four Screen is available across Ireland. This screen combines testing for four STIs and provides results within half an hour. The Instant Four is suitable for people with at least a 28-day period of incubation. This is the time between your last potential exposure and your test.


Which STIs are tested for?

The Instant Four Screen tests for:

  • HIV I/II and the p24 antigen
  • Chlamydia
  • Gonorrhoea
  • Syphilis

You can also add tests for Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C to this screen, at our reduced bolt-on price.

Which samples are needed?

Better2Know’s Instant Four Screen requires blood and swab samples. The swabs, which test for Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea, may be uncomfortable but are not painful. The blood sample, used to detect HIV and Syphilis, can be taken from a finger prick lancet, so it is ideal for those who do not like needles.

How do I get my results?

This fast, accurate and efficient testing method provides results within 30 minutes. All our tests and results are completely confidential and totally anonymous. For full peace of mind, you will receive your results while you wait in the clinic.

What if I test positive?

Should your Instant Four Screen come back reactive, Better2Know will give you the help you need. For Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea and Syphilis, all of which are curable, we will help you to get the best advice and the right antibiotics for your condition.

For HIV, we will assist you in getting the next stages of treatment such as confirmatory testing and access to ongoing medical treatment, as well as advice and support.
