The right HIV test for you depends on your own circumstances.  We have four different HIV tests in Manchester.  They vary by the time it takes to get results, and how long it has been since any incident you are concerned about.  Our Manchester HIV Testing Clinics are open seven days a week. 

Let’s start with incubation period.  This is how long it has been since any incident that you are concerned about.  It is also known as the window period.  It is measured in days.  This helps to guide you into which test is right for you.

Our Early Detection Screen is our 10 Day HIV Test. It tests for HIV, Hepatitis B, and Hepatitis C.  From our Manchester clinics, you will get your results three days from when your sample is received in the laboratory.  It is 96% accurate at 10 days.

Our standard HIV test is our 28 Day HIV Test.  This is available at all our clinics in Manchester.  You will get your result the same day your sample is received in our laboratory.  It is 99.8% accurate at 28 days.  This is a fourth generation test.

If you want extra information, then our Manchester clinics can give you a 5th generation HIV Test.  This gives you a result against each of the p-24 antigen, HIV 1 antibody and HIV 2 antibody.  Results are available the day after your sample is received in the laboratory.

Finally, our Instant HIV Test is available in Manchester City Centre.  It will give you your results in around 20 minutes while you wait at the clinic.  It is 99.6% accurate at 26 days incubation.

Our friendly booking team are available 24/7.  They can book you into our Manchester HIV Testing Clinics so that you get the right test for you.  You can also book your test online.
