  • You are worried you have been exposed to HIV and wish to get an early diagnosis
  • You think you may have been exposed to either Hepatitis B or Hepatitis C
HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) is a virus which weakens and destroys the body's ability to fight infection and illness. HIV is the main cause of AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome). HIV is found in the body fluids of an infected person including semen, vaginal and anal fluids, blood and breast milk. HIV can't be transmitted through sweat, urine or saliva. The most common way of getting HIV in the UK is through having unprotected sex with an infected partner, but the virus can also be caught by sharing needles during drug use. Some people experience a flu-like symptoms for around 2-6 weeks after a HIV infection. After these symptoms disappear, HIV may not cause any symptoms for many years, but the virus still continues to damage the immune system. Many don’t know they are infected.

The test looks for specific HIV antibodies that are produced shortly after infection. A P24 Antigen test is also carried out to reduce the risk of a false diagnosis. Due to the sensitive nature and serious implications of a positive result, all tests are checked by a confirmatory test. This way you can be sure of a highly accurate and reliable result. 

Due to the sensitive nature and serious implications of a positive HIV result, all tests are checked by a confirmatory test. This way you can sure of a highly accurate and reliable result. A venous blood sample is large enough for the confirmatory test to be performed on the same sample, however a positive finger prick sample will require a second blood sample to be taken. Our customer services team will arrange this if it is needed.

This test also checks for Hepatitis B and C. Hepatitis B and C are both infections of the liver caused by a virus that's spread through blood and body fluids. Hepatitis B can be passed from person by person through blood, semen, vaginal fluids and, again, 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, symptoms of Hepatitis B and C may include flu-like symptoms, fatigue, jaundice and a fever.
