Who should have this test?
This test is suitable for both men and women who want to test for Hepatitis B. Hepatitis B is a very infectious virus. It can be passed on by blood contact. This test can detect the infection whether it has been transmitted through sexual intercourse or non-sexual contact.
How long should I wait until I have the test?
You should wait 28 days since any incident that you are concerned about before having his test. If you want to get tested sooner than this, then you should choose our Early Detection Screen. This is a laboratory test. It is accurate just 10 days after any incident that you are concerned about.
What will happen at my appointment?
This test needs a few drops of blood to run. This can be collected through a finger stick. Your clinician will ask you if you have any questions about the test, and then collect your sample and run your test.
How long do results take?
The Hepatitis B test takes around 15 minutes to run. A control line will appear on the test cassette when the test is complete. One line means the test is negative, two lines means that the test is reactive.
What happens if my test is reactive?
Your clinician will take a blood sample and send it to our accredited laboratory for fast analysis. This is all included in your Better2Know service. If this confirmation test is positive, then we will help to refer you to a specialist for treatment. Most people make a full recovery from Hepatitis B.
