How will samples be collected?

By February 27, 2020

HIV, Syphilis, and Hepatitis C samples are collected via a blood draw. Testing for chlamydia and gonorrhea can be done with a urine sample and/or a swab of your throat and rectum. It’s important to provide swab samples if you’ve had oral or anal sex since these areas may be infected with chlamydia or gonorrhea but urine samples won’t find those infections. Swab tests are done with a sterile swab that is sent to the lab for testing.
