Buy an HIV Test Online
The STI Clinic provides 5th generation HIV testing, which is the latest technology available. The test seeks to detect both antigens and antibodies and provides reliable results 6 weeks after exposure. The test can detect HIV antigens (p24) as early as 10 days after exposure but if you get a negative result and the sample was taken before the 6 weeks point, we would recommend a retest. We recommend testing as early as possible so long as 10 days have elapsed.

Providing a Sample
You will be supplied with an easy-to-use sample collection kit using a finger prick. A small amount of blood is collected from the finger prick in a specially designed chamber. You then send your sample back in the pre-paid envelope. Once your sample is received at the lab, it normally takes 4 hours to process your results.
All packing is very discreet and there is no mention of us or the contents on the outside. All packaging is marked Private & Confidential.
Your results will be published to your patient profile, which can only be accessed by you. We do not send results by post unless you specifically request this service. If you have a positive result you will have the option of having a conversation with a doctor.
Any positive result must be confirmed with a face to face venous sample. We will provide you with a list of local sexual health clinics in the UK where you can have this test performed. False positives are highly unlikely but we have to recommend this further level of testing in the event of a positive result from our test.
We cannot provide treatments for HIV but if you test positive you will be given advice on treatments when you have your follow-up test. Treatments for the management of HIV are highly effective and produce excellent patient outcomes if the treatment is commenced at the appropriate stage.
