Diagnoses Hepatitis B & Hepatitis C using the same sample
The Profile 6 Test can diagnose both Hepatitis B & Hepatitis C using the same sample. It can be particularly useful for people living with HIV who are at a greater risk of contracting Hepatitis.
Who is this test for?
People living with HIV have a heightened risk of contracting Hepatitis B & C. Around 1 in 10 people with HIV have Hepatitis B, whilst 1 in 4 people with HIV have Hepatitis C. Therefore regular testing against hepatitis if you are living with HIV is essential. This test is also useful if you believe you have been exposed to hepatitis.
How is the test carried out?
The test is carried out using a finger prick blood sample. Instructions on how to collect your sample are included in the test pack, whilst the video on our Home Tests page will offer further guidance.
This test has a quick turnaround time, with results often returned within 1 day of the sample hitting the lab.
The sample collection pack is sent Royal Mail First Class the same day that you make your order if you complete your purchase before 4pm or the following day if made after.
This test offers accurate results 28 days following initial exposure to Hepatitis, therefore it should not be used before this time. If you are concerned about Hepatitis and it’s been less than 28 days since exposure our Early Detection tests offer accurate results 10 days after exposure.
