What is the Platinum / Early Platinum Screen?

The Better2Know Platinum and Early Platinum Screens for STIs and STDs are our most comprehensive screens. Both screens look for the same STIs. The Early Platinum Screen uses a different testing method for some of tests, which means it can detect the presence of HIV, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C sooner after potential exposure. If you are in any doubt, our booking team will help you to book the right Platinum Screen for you.
