FAST 6 with Swab
6 major STI tests with a quick laboratory turnaround time and swab sample collection
Our FAST 6 test with Swab can diagnose six of the most common sexually transmitted infections with a four hour lab turnaround time. This means that as soon as they hit the lab, they will be tested meaning you can get the results and treatment you require much quicker.
Please note: This is not an instant test and you will still need to wait for transit time between the clinic and the laboratory of 1-2 working days.

Who is this test for?
This test is designed for someone who wants accurate laboratory diagnosis against six of the most common sexually transmitted infections, without having to wait for standard laboratory turnaround times. The swab sample can provide a more accurate diagnosis for people who have been exposed to an STI through oral or anal sex.
Results for this test will usually be available within a day of being received by the laboratory. All of our samples are sent to the laboratory by either post or courier, usually taking 1-2 working days, depending on the time of your appointment.
When can I take this test?
This test offers accurate diagnosis 28 days after potential exposure to the condition. If you believe you have come into contact with any of the conditions more recently then you may benefit from our Early Detection tests which offer effective diagnosis 10 days after potential exposure.
Clinic test procedure
By selecting a clinic test you’ll be assisted by a nurse or doctor in one of our sexual health clinics located across the country.
1. Book your test
To book this test, simply press the ‘Select This Test’ button above. You’ll then be taken to our booking page where you can choose the best clinic for your needs.
2. Arrive at the clinic
Our clinics are all based in a discreet setting and because many of them are general health clinics, there’s no reason why anyone will know that you’re there for a sexual health screening. Just let the receptionist know who you are upon arrival.
3. Your blood sample
The Quick Turnaround 1 with Swab test requires a blood and urine sample. The blood sample is collected by a trained nurse or doctor. They’ll take care of you and ensure you’re comfortable, but it will require the use of a needle.
4. Your swab sample
Your swab sample may be taken by you following instructions from the nurse or doctor, or it may be taken directly by the nurse or doctor. It’s important that you follow the instructions carefully to ensure it’s taken from the correct area of the body.
