Our Syphilis Testing Options

  • Syphilis Test

    Our Syphilis RPR test is accurate after 72 hours from the encounter

    This test is performed with a blood specimen. The Rapid Plasma Reagin (RPR) is used to test for syphilis. This blood test looks for antibodies to the syphilis virus. If the RPR is positive, another test, called a treponemal pallidum test, will be automatically run to confirm the result. Syphilis testing is essential because an individual can have a syphilis infection without knowing it and can pass it along to a partner easily.

    Results times: 24-48 hours from collection
