Sexual Health (6 Biomarkers)

Most sexually transmitted infections can be tested for using urine or blood samples. Certain STI's don't always cause symptoms and can develop into more serious conditions if untreated.


  • Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted infection from the bacteria Chlamydia trachomatis. Chlamydia is by far the most common sexually transmitted disease in the UK at present. A large percentage of people with this will not exhibit any symptoms thus chlamydia often being referred to as “The Silent Epidemic”. Chlamydia can be easily treated , if left untreated however it can cause significant reproductive problems. If your result is positive it is important to contact your partner (s) to advise them of the result and get tested / treated as well.

  • Gonorrhoea is a sexually transmitted infection caused by the bacteria Neisseria gonorrhoeae. If left untreated, gonorrhoea can cause severe reproductive and health problems.

  • Hepatitis B Surface Antigen (HBsAg) are produced in the body by the hepatitis B virus. It is a virus which causes a liver infection and is spread from contact with the blood and bodily fluids of an infected person. HBsAg tests are used to diagnose if a person is currently infectious.

  • Hepatitis C Antibodies (HCAg) are produced by the immune system after exposure to hepatitis C. Hepatitis C is a virus which causes a liver infection and is spread from contact with the blood of an infected person. HCAg tests are used to determine whether a person has previously been exposed to hepatitis C.

  • HIV 1&2 antibodies are produced by the immune system after exposure to HIV. HIV 1&2 antibodies tests are used to measure the presence of antibodies being produced in response to the presence of HIV. Levels of the viral p24 protein are present in the blood serum of newly infected individuals during the short period between infection and seroconversion, making p24 antigen assays useful in diagnosing primary HIV infection.

  • Syphilis IgM/IgG are produced by the immune system during and after exposure to syphilis. IgM are antibodies that are the first form of response to syphilis and are used to indicate current infection. IgG are antibodies that are produced after exposure to syphilis and are used as an indicator of long-term immunity that the body creates.
