Syphilis Test Panel

Syphilis is one of the most common STDs and can easily be prevented through early testing, detection and treating it through medication. In fact, this is one of the STDs that can be completely cured if diagnosed in time. It is therefore important that you identify the presence of Syphilis through STD testing to avoid a situation that can lead to more complications that include paralysis, dementia, organ failure, brain damage and potential contraction of HIV when the disease progresses to a later stage. Since Syphilis symptoms may not easily surface during the later stages of the disease, an infected individual might be mislead into thinking that they are not infected at all. Hence, it is good to get tested if in doubt or if there’s an exposure through a sexual partner.

Syphilis is tested in our highly rated CLIA certified labs in two phases. A nontreponemal test like RPR (Rapid Plasma Reagin) is used for screening the person who’s at risk of contracting Syphilis. If the person reacts positive to the RPR, a treponemal test is done on the person’s blood specimen to confirm a syphilis diagnosis. A small amount of blood sample is required to be drawn to complete the test and no fasting or special preparation is required.

Nontreponemal tests (RPR) are simple tests and are often used for screening. However, they are not specific for Syphilis, can produce false-positive results, and by themselves, are insufficient for diagnosis. Hence, persons with a reactive nontreponemal test should receive a treponemal test to confirm a Syphilis diagnosis. This sequence of testing (nontreponemal, then treponemal test) is considered the “classical” testing algorithm. Treponemal tests detect antibodies that are specific for Syphilis. Treponemal antibodies appear earlier than nontreponemal antibodies and usually remain detectable for life, even after successful treatment.

How is Syphilis tested, is it a blood or urine test?

Syphilis is tested on a blood sample. Laboratory personnel draw a small blood sample during your visit to the test center and use this to complete the test.

What do I need to do to prepare for the test?

Syphilis tests don’t require any special preparation. No fasting is necessary for the blood draw.

How can one get tested for Syphilis?

Syphilis transmission occurs usually through unprotected vaginal, anal, or oral sex with an infected person. If one suspects an infection with the bacteria, they can easily get tested. The most common test is the Rapid Plasma Reagin (RPR) blood test that detects the presence of antibodies in the blood. If the first test if positive, a confirmatory test is usually done on the same blood sample without additional cost.

Who should get tested for Syphilis?

Syphilis is usually asymptomatic with most patients exhibiting no symptoms of infection. If one has had unprotected sex with a partner whose STD status is unknown, they should get tested. Syphilis has a high likelihood to occur in people who have multiple sex partners and in men who have sex with men.

How soon can one tested after exposure?

One should get tested at least three to six weeks after possible exposure to Syphilis. Testing too early can give false-negative results as the antibodies will not be detected in the blood. If one tests negative, it is important to have a confirmatory test after six weeks.

What do the test results mean?

A positive Syphilis test indicates an infection, which if diagnosed in its early stages is easily treated with antibiotics. A negative result shows the absence of the infection. However, one may have tested too soon to be able to detect the bacteria and a re-test is required to confirm. If one tests positive, the infection is curable through the administration of antibiotics.

When Is The Best Time To Test For STDs?

The best time to test for sexually transmitted diseases is now. The best way to test is with our comprehensive 10-Test Panel that checks for all of the most common STDs.

Most STDs are "silent" and do not show symptoms. You can have an STD and unknowingly transmit it to others. If you suspect you have contracted an STD through unprotected sexual contact, sharing drug injection equipment, or by coming in contact with infected blood, it is important that you get tested as soon as possible to avoid any health complications. For answers to your questions about our 10-Test Panel, call our counselors 24/7 at 1(855)847-7254.

Individual Tests

Individual tests are offered in case you want to run tests for one or multiple infection types to eliminate your concern about having specific infection type. These tests are also offered in case you would like to retest to confirm that an existing infection has been cured following a treatment.

You may choose to select one or more tests from the individual tests offered in the list below:


Early HIV detection

Our FDA approved HIV RNA test can be taken after 6 days of exposure and can conclusively detect an HIV infection as early as 9-11 days after exposure.

Excellent service hands down. My test was quick and results were available sooner than I expected. The best part was the privacy of the test. No one asked me personal questions, and the whole process was quite discreet.
