Product Description

Early Detection Screen Nurse Kit

Our Early Detection Screen tests for HIV, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C at just ten days after potential exposure. This is the earliest possible time that these infections can be accurately detected.

This is a Nurse Kit, which requires a qualified medical practitioner to collect a blood sample from your arm. To do this, you may attend your local clinic or ask a trained nurse. Alternatively, Better2Know can arrange a convenient nurse visit for you. This may incur an additional fee.

Which STIs does the Early Detection Screen test for?

  • HIV
  • Hepatitis B
  • Hepatitis C

This screen can be ordered online at any time. You should arrange for your medical practitioner to collect your sample no earlier than day 10 after the incident that you are concerned about.

What will my test kit include?

Inside your test kit, you will find:

  • Two purple-topped blood collection tubes and protective case
  • A needle and holder
  • Pre-blood draw antiseptic wipe and plaster
  • A pathology form
  • A pre-paid return envelope
  • A full set of instructions.

How does this screen work?

Once you have ordered your test kit, we will send it to you by first class post. Alternatively, you can opt for our Special Delivery option at the checkout. Please ensure that you read the instructions carefully. You should then arrange to have your venous blood sample collected by a qualified practitioner. After your sample has been taken, please return it to the laboratory using the pre-paid envelope included in your kit, in accordance with the instructions provided.

When will my test kit arrive?

If you order your test kit before 4pm between Monday and Friday, we will post your kit to you on the same day. The kit should arrive either the next working day or the following day.

How will I receive my results?

As soon as our laboratory has processed your sample, we will upload your results to your secure online patient area. You can track the progress of your results at any time by logging into your patient area with the details provided in your confirmation email. We will email you to let you know when all your results are ready to view.

Is testing with Better2Know confidential?

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: When will you send my kit to me?

If your order is placed before 4pm on a working day, then it will be sent the same day. Otherwise it will be sent on the next working day.

Q: Why do you need my email address?

Your Patient Services Manager, Louise Wright, will email you your login details to access your results, a confirmation your kit has been dispatched and finally when all your results are ready. We do not sell on or email you any other marketing materials, that is why we do not ask you to opt in or out of anything.

No, but the postman does need to know where to deliver the kit to. As long as you use a name that will get the kit to you, then we do not need your real name.

Q: What does the kit packaging look like?

It will arrive in plain white envelope with your typed name and address on it.

Q: What if I have any more questions?

You can email Louise by replying to one of the emails she has sent to you. She will do her best to answer them.
