This test is for total antibodies to the Hepatitis C virus (HCV). If present, the infection is current, and the individual will have been infected by HCV, at some point up to about 3-4 weeks prior to submitting the sample. Further testing via a specialist service will be needed if the result is positive.

HCV is an RNA virus, which is transmitted via blood from an infected individual. HCV infects the liver which causes inflammation, fibrosis and an increased risk of liver cancer (primary). Currently worldwide there are approximately 150 million (HCV) infected individuals. HCV infection may cause acute hepatitis although many who become infected have no symptoms for many years.

HCV is a transmitted virus which can be acquired from blood or blood products contracted via blood transfusion, contaminated needles, tattooing or body piercing. It can also be transmitted by sexual contact between an infected and non immune partner.

Please be aware that if contact has been within the past 3-4 weeks, the antibodies to HCV may not have reached a detectable level - in which case repeat testing a further 4 weeks later should be considered, especially if the risk of having acquired one of these infections is considered to be high.

This test is NOT available as a finger prick BUT is available as a vacutainer sample collection option. You can make your own arrangement for blood collection, or choose to visit a Circle Hospital or Superdrug store, or to opt for a Nurse Home Visit. Select option at checkout.

Special Instructions: Fasting not required. Appropriate from 28 days post-contact.

Utterly patient, kind and helpful, kit arrived next day, as did my results. 5 stars well-deserved.

Dell Finniam

Great service and product. The turn around is brilliant (mostly - there was a glitch during the early part of the Covid pandemic, but that seems to be resolved now). Tests are recognised by the medical profession so I am able to use the results to get the treatment I need without further tests.

Alexis Faulkner

I had various questions which they answered via email/webchat and the timing of getting a kit, sending it back and getting the results was good.
