Three reasons to choose the Better2Know Platinum or Early Platinum Screen:
- The most comprehensive STI screens available in Australia
- Available from either 14 or 28 days after any incident you are concerned about
- Fast results reported 24/7 to your secure, online patient area
Better2Know has two Platinum Screens depending on your period of incubation. Both Platinum Screens test for the same eleven STIs but use a slightly different method of testing for HIV, Hepatitis and Syphilis. As such, our Early Platinum Screen will provide highly accurate results at half the incubation period of the Better2Know Platinum Screen. If you are unsure, our expert booking team will help you select the right Platinum Screen for you.
What do the Platinum Screens test for?
Our Platinum and Early Platinum Screens test for:
- Hepatitis B
- Hepatitis C
- Herpes I/II
What will happen at my appointment?
Your private clinician will collect blood and urine samples for both screens. There are no painful or embarrassing swabs necessary for either testing option and no fasting or dietary requirements are required. We advise that you refrain from using the bathroom for two hours before your appointment to ensure you can produce a urine sample.
How will I get my results?
Your results will be uploaded onto your secure patient area as soon as they become available. You can log in to check their progress at any time. We will also contact you directly by a method of your choice once they are all ready to report.
What if my results reveal that I have an STI?
If you test positive for any of the infections included in the Better2Know Platinum or Early Platinum Screens, we are here to help you. Our trained sexual health advisors will provide support throughout your patient journey. Most STIs are curable and our dedicated staff will help you get the prescription for the required medication for a full recovery. Your Better2Know advisor will also refer you to a specialist service, if necessary.
