Caution 

There is a window period where the test may not indicate the presence of the virus since the body has a certain timeframe before it produces enough antibodies to be detected.

If it has not been more than 3 months after the possible exposure, you are recommended to undergo the examination after a full 3 months have passed. 

Your test results will be explained to you in exchange for a copy of your application form, and are generally given to you one week after the blood sampling. None of the information regarding your test results will be given to you by either telephone or post.

Results of tests taken on holidays or at nighttime will generally be given the same day you take the test.

Please be reminded, in accordance with our confidentiality policy, we do not issue any kind of certificate of the test results.
