What samples are required?
Your Instant Six Screen requires blood and swab samples for analysis. Your swab sample will be used to detect Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea infections, whereas your blood sample will be analysed for HIV, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C and Syphilis infections. There are no fasting or dietary requirements necessary for this testing option and the blood sample used will be collected without the use of needles.
How will I receive my results?
The results from your Instant Six Screen will be available within half an hour of being tested. The clinic will also provide you with a copy of the Better2Know Rapid Test Results Report.
What if I test positive for an STI?
Better2Know’s trained Patient Services team will arrange a private consultation with one of our skilled doctors in South Africa, so you can discuss your diagnosis in more detail. For positive Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea infections, a prescription will be provided at your confidential appointment. This will not require any additional payment. If your screen is reactive for HIV, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C or Syphilis, Better2Know will conduct further venous blood sample analysis at no extra cost. We will also refer you to a specialist service who can provide further guidance and advice regarding your treatment options.
