The Better2Know Instant Hepatitis B test is available in many of our clinics across the Middle East. The test is suitable just 28 days after potential exposure to the virus and is also included in our Instant Six Screen.
If left untreated, Hepatitis B infections can cause a chronic illness, lasting for more than six months. In extreme cases, patients can even develop chronic infection cirrhosis, liver cancer, or liver failure, all of which can prove fatal. Getting tested is the only way to be certain of your Hepatitis B status, and our Instant tests provide fast, efficient and highly accurate results.
Which samples will be used?
The Instant Hepatitis B test requires a single blood sample to detect infection. The sample will be taken using a finger prick lancet, making it ideal for those who do not like needles. Once collected, the blood sample is added to a test cassette to run, with results available in under 30 minutes.
How will I receive my results?
Your Instant Hepatitis B test results will be available within half an hour of providing your samples. As well as your confidential results, you will also receive a personal pathology report from your Better2Know doctor or nurse.
What if I test positive?
For reactive Hepatitis B Instant tests, we will arrange further, confirmatory testing of a venous blood sample at no extra cost. We can also organise private doctor’s consultations and, if necessary, we will refer you to a specialist service. You may instead wish to take your results to your local doctor or general practitioner.
