SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED INFECTIONS (STI)
North West Labs offers Sexual Health Profiles for Males and Females that provide healthcare providers with comprehensive results for multiple infections from easy-to-collect samples, including blood and urine. The following disease markers and tests are included in the profiles:
The North West Labs Sexual Health and STI Urine Profiles have a range of benefits, including:
- Use of nucleic acid amplification tests (NAAT) offers high sensitivity and high specificity compared to pathogen identification by culture and wet-mount microscopy.
- Definitive identification of multiple pathogens leads to targeted treatment and reduced complications, as well as preventing disease progression and transmission.
- Use of non-invasive testing makes patients more comfortable than with use of traditional urethral swabs, leading to increased screening acceptance.
- Treatment management tools (such as previous test results and highlighted abnormalities on the test report) promote patient engagement and treatment compliance.
