FAST 4 with Swab
Swab test against four STIs with a quick laboratory turnaround time
Our FAST 4 tests for four of the most common sexually transmitted infections with a quick laboratory turnaround time. By using a swab you will be able to diagnose chlamydia and gonorrhoea in the throat, anus or vagina.
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 anyone who has had unprotected anal or oral sex and believes they may have come into contact with one of the conditions tested against. It offers a quicker turnaround time than our standard tests, meaning you can get your treatment and results much sooner.
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 2 with Swab test requires a blood and swab 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.
