What's in the test kit?
All our kits are similar, yet bespoke for your order. Your kit will contain all the bits you need to collect your sample and return it to our laboratory for testing.
In addition to the standard swab and urine samples for bacterial infections, you will also be asked to collect a small finger-prick blood sample. This is so we can test for blood-borne infections such as HIV and Syphilis.
Some services may also offer you additional swabs to test for oral and rectal infections.

We will also include full instructions in the kit, and it's important you follow them closely, especially for the blood sample collection to ensure it is suitable for us to test.
If you're not comfortable with collecting the blood sample, you may not wish to choose a GUM Kit. However, if you try but are unable to collect a blood sample, don't worry as we will still test your swab or urine.
