What is the Early Platinum Screen?
Better2Know’s Early Platinum Screen is our most comprehensive STI test. This screen can detect the presence of eleven infections as early as 14 days since any incident of concern. This test is excellent for gaining a complete picture of your sexual health at the earliest incubation period.
This screen aims to relieve your worries about many STIs as soon as possible after your last potential exposure. Maybe you are feeling anxious and you want to test for an array of infections including HIV, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C. Better2Know can help you to get tested.
Which STIs are tested for?
Our Early Platinum Screen tests for:
- Hepatitis B

Which samples are needed?
This screen requires a simple blood and urine sample. Please make sure that you can produce a urine sample during your appointment. No uncomfortable swabs will need to be taken, and there are no fasting requirements for this test or any other Better2Know test.
How do I get my results?
Your results will be available no longer than four days after your sample arrives at our accredited laboratory. Once all your results are ready, we will contact you by phone, email or SMS. Please let us know your preferred method at the time of booking. Alternatively, you can call us at a time that suits you. You can also track the progress of your results in your secure online Patient Area.
What if I test positive?
Do not worry; we are here to help you. Our dedicated Patient Services Team will support you every step of the way. Most STIs are curable with the right medication. Better2Know can arrange a private consultation with a doctor, who will discuss your diagnosis and provide a prescription to treat the infection.
Depending on the STI(s) you have tested positive for, we will refer you to a specialist who can assist you in the next stages of treatment and provide access to ongoing medication.
You can, of course, take your results to your own GP if you prefer.
