Why choose the Better2Know Platinum or Early Platinum Screen?

The Platinum and Early Platinum Screens are Better2Know’s most comprehensive screening options, providing accurate testing for eleven STIs. You can choose the Early Platinum Screen from as early as 14 days after potential exposure, and the Platinum Screen at least 28 days after any incident that you are concerned about.

Incubation Period:

14 days (Early Platinum Screen), 28 days (Platinum Screen)

Samples Required:

Blood and Urine

Infections Tested:

HIV, Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea, Syphilis, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, Herpes I/II (Current Infection), Mycoplasma, Ureaplasma, Trichomonas, Gardnerella

How does the Better2Know testing process work?

Both screens require blood and urine samples, which will be collected at your appointment by a qualified clinician. There are no painful or embarrassing swabs, and no fasting requirements associated with either screen. To ensure you can produce a urine sample at your private appointment, it is advisable to avoid urinating for at least two hours prior to testing. Once your samples have been collected, they will be sent directly to a certified laboratory in Asia for fast, accurate analysis.

How will I receive my results?

The results of your Platinum or Early Platinum Screen will be reported online in your secure patient area as soon as they are ready. You can log in and check their progress at any time. We will also contact you personally when all your results are ready.

What happens if my results are positive?

Should you test positive for any of the STIs, Better2Know can arrange a private consultation with a doctor for you. The doctor will discuss your results with you and, depending on the STI, provide a prescription for the necessary medication or a referral to a specialist service. You can also take your results to your own doctor, or a sexual health centre of your choice, if you would prefer.
