IVF Viral Screen Blood Test

A simple finger-prick blood test to check for viruses including HIV, hepatitis B and hepatitis C as well as syphilis before starting fertility treatment.

Is it for you?

Are you starting IVF fertility treatment and need to be able to show that you are free of infectious diseases? Have you and your partner been asked to have a viral screen by your fertility clinic before you start treatment? Or are you pregnant already and want to ensure that you are clear of infectious diseases that could potentially harm your unborn child? If so, this screen for HIV, hepatitis B, hepatitis C and syphilis is the right test for you.
Blood sample 5 tests included 2 working days turnaround


Key biomarkers - see full list below

Before starting IVF treatment you and your partner will be expected to have a screen for certain viral and bacterial infections. This is to minimise the risk of unintentionally passing on a disease to your baby, but also to protect the medical team who will be working with you. This IVF viral screen looks for evidence of current or past infection of HIV, hepatitis B, hepatitis C and syphilis. 

Our doctors will interpret your results and advise you whether you need to visit a specialist for further investigation.
If there is a chance that you have been exposed to hepatitis B or C then please let us know how long before taking your sample this occurred. If you are checking for current hepatitis B infection then this sample is best taken 4 weeks after any possible exposure to infection. High dose biotin supplements can affect this test. If you are taking more than the recommended daily amount then you should not take your supplements for 2 days prior to this test. If you are taking high dose biotin for medical reasons (e.g. multiple sclerosis) then you should discuss this with your doctor. Please let us know if you have had a hepatitis B vaccination.
