What is the Instant Six Screen?
Better2Know’s Instant Six Screen provides rapid test results for six of the most common STIs. This screen is suitable for people who have achieved 28 days of incubation. This is the time between the incident of which you are concerned and your test.
Which STIs are tested for?
The Instant Six Screen tests for:
- HIV I/II and the p24 antigen
- Hepatitis B
- Hepatitis C
Which samples are needed?
The Instant Six Screen uses simple blood and swab samples to detect infection. The blood can be taken by finger prick lancet and tests for HIV, Syphilis, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C. The swabs are used to look for Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea. They may be uncomfortable but are not considered painful.
How do I get my results?
Your results will be ready quickly and efficiently. With our Instant Six Screen, we will provide your results within 30 minutes while you wait in the clinic. This is our most comprehensive Instant screen, aiming to provide you with total peace of mind.
