Laboratory Testing

Our tests are carried out using automated laboratory analysers, usually the same as those used by most NHS screening services. While our tests will detect infections in most people who have an infection, it's important to remember that as with any microbiology laboratory test no result is 100% accurate. There is a small chance that a test may show negative even when you have an infection. This is called a false negative test result. It is also possible for a test to be positive even when you do not have an infection. This is called a false positive test result. Both of these false tests are very rare but can sometimes explain why you get a different result to your sexual partner. Please note that some test samples may be retained by the laboratory after testing for internal studies and verification purposes (such as performing equipment validation). In all instances samples used in this way will be fully anonymised and never connected back to an individual patient using the service.
