What is the Platinum Screen?

The Better2Know Platinum Screen is our most comprehensive set of tests for sexually transmitted infections (STIs). This screen is suitable for anyone who has had a new sexual experience or is considering entering a new relationship with someone. As most STIs and STDs do not show any symptoms, the only way to know and to be certain about your sexual health status is to get tested.

Which STIs are tested for?

Our Platinum Screen tests for the following STIs:

  • HIV I/II and the p24 antigen
  • Chlamydia
  • Gonorrhoea
  • Syphilis
  • Hepatitis B
  • Hepatitis C
  • Ureaplasma
  • Mycoplasma
  • Trichomonas
  • Gardnerella
  • Herpes I/II

What samples are needed?

A simple blood and urine sample is required for this screen. No painful or embarrassing swabs need to be taken. There is no need to fast before this test or any other Better2Know test. You will need to make sure you can produce a urine sample during your appointment.

How will I get my results?

All your results will be available online in your secure Patient Area which only you have access to. Your results will be uploaded as the laboratory analyses your samples. We will notify you when they are all back by email or SMS.

What if I test positive?

Do not worry. Most STIs can be cured with the right medication. We will help you access treatment quickly and discreetly. We can help you to speak to a doctor if you would like. In some cases where it may be required, we can also refer you to a specialist for ongoing support.
