Special instructionsIf there is a chance that you have been exposed to HIV, hepatitis B or C then please let us know how long before taking your sample this occurred. Your sample should be taken 4 weeks after any hepatitis B exposure. Take your test at least 4 weeks after any possible HIV exposure, a repeat test is recommended at 12 weeks. Do not take biotin supplements for 2 days prior to this test. If you are taking prescribed biotin you should discuss this with your doctor.
The test looks for specific HIV antibodies that are produced shortly after infection. A p24 antigen test is also carried out to increase the chances of detecting an infection sooner after exposure.
This test also checks for hepatitis B and C. Hepatitis B and C are both infections of the liver caused by a virus that is spread through blood and body fluids. Hepatitis B can be passed from person to person through blood, semen, vaginal fluids and also by infected needles or syringes. Hepatitis C, the most common type of viral hepatitis in England, is usually transmitted through blood-to-blood contact. Although many will experience no symptoms, hepatitis B and C may cause flu-like symptoms, fatigue, jaundice and fever.
