1. HIV TESTING
1.1. 3rd Generation HIV test
– 3rd generation HIV test should be done at least 21 days after suspected HIV exposure. In other words, this test has a window period of 21 days.
1.2. 4th Generation HIV test
– The test is designed to detect both antibody against HIV and p24 HIV antigen. It has 2-week window period.
*WHAT IS WINDOW PERIOD?*
Window period is the duration of time when the screening test cannot detect the antibody yet despite there is an infection in the person’s body. When the window period is passed, the amount of the antibody will be high enough to be detected by the test.
Syphilis can be easily transmitted via intimate physical contact and sexual contact via saliva, blood, or secretions. Glove clinic has 2 types of tests for syphilis screening.
2.1. Anti-TP (Rapid blood test) – This tests shows the result either positive or negative. If you have a history of syphilis infection, this test will not be able to give the information regarding new infection. You should go for VDRL titer.
2.2. VDRL titer – This is not a rapid test and will take 1-3 working days in order to receive the result. VDRL titer is used for follow-up treatment and for diagnosis of new infection.
3. HEPATITIS B & C
Hepatitis B and C can be transmitted via blood and sexual contact. We highly recommend you to get the test if you would like to start PrEP/PEP or your partner is diagnosed with hepatitis B or C infection. You can also check if you have enough immunity against hepatitis B, we also offer the test (Anti-HBsAg).
4. Herpes simplex type 1/2 IgM and IgG
Normally, blood test for herpes is not needed to make a diagnosis. However, herpes IgM could be a useful tool to confirm the diagnosis of the new infection. On the other hand, herpes IgG will be positive forever after the first infection. We advise you to have a consultation with our staffs before proceeding these tests.
5. PCR for 11 STDs
Even though this test is quite expensive but it is a good idea to check once in a while because it is common that you might carry some infection but do not have any symptoms. The sample will be collected from vagina, anus, throat or urine. The 11 STDs are;
1. Chlamydia trachomatis (serovars A-K)
2. Chlamydia trachomatis (serovars L1-L3)
3. Neisseria gonorrhoeae
4. Mycoplasma hominis
5. Mycoplasma genitalium
6. Ureaplasma urealyticum
7. Ureaplasma parvum

10. Treponema pallidum (Syphilis)
11. Haemophilus ducreyi
6. HPV (Human papillomavirus) typing
– There are many types of HPV but some types are more aggressive than others and are able to cause cervical or anal cancer. If you know early that you carry high-risk strains of HPV, you will be able to seek for medical care earlier to prevent the cancer.
