Why Get Tested?
Your sexual health is important. Getting tested for your own health and safety is critical, both for your own good and that of your partner. Sexual transmission is the most common way that serious infections are spread. Getting tested privately and confidentially allows you to make sure you are disease-free and you do not even have to leave your home to be tested or to obtain test results.
Many people may have an STD and be unaware of it unless they have symptoms. Getting tested in your home will give you privacy as well as peace of mind. If you get a positive test, you can get the treatment you need.
FDA Cleared Testing Kits
Our kits use FDA-cleared test components. The tests that are done at our lab have been fully validated per state and federal guidelines; these include CLIA and College of American Pathologists (CAP) standards. Our lab uses the latest methods with the highest level of accuracy for clinical diagnostic testing.
STD Testing Kits Available
Our standard testing kit tests for:
- HIV 1 and 2
- Herpes simplex virus 2
Our complete test kit includes all of the testing offered above, plus hepatitis C at a lower rate. These tests are frequently recommended by physicians. Also available is our Common test kit that bundles three common STD tests: trichomoniasis, chlamydia and gonorrhea, at a discounted price. Also included is the Simple test kit that checks for chlamydia and gonorrhea.
You can order individual disease tests if you need them. This could be necessary to retest for an infection after treatment, to confirm a positive test or to retest a negative test after experiencing high-risk exposure.
Testing Methods Used
- HIV 1 and 2: Screens for early detection and incubated types of HIV. Recommended for people who may have been exposed to HIV as well as anyone who was never tested.
- Herpes 2: ELISA antibody test is used to check for IgG antibodies produced by the body after exposure to the herpes simplex virus HSV2.
- Hepatitis C: Antibodies to hepatitis C virus are detected in the blood with an ELISA test system.
- Syphilis: An ELISA assay is used to check for antibodies to Treponema pallidum infections, which is what causes syphilis.
Urine and Vaginal Swab Tests
- Chlamydia, gonorrhea and trichomoniasis: DNA testing for these bacteria is done with strand displacement amplification technology.
- HPV (Human Papilloma Virus): DNA detection in urine samples is performed in a single lab analysis with NAAT methods using polymerase chain reaction and nucleic acid hybridization.
- Mycoplasma and ureaplasma: DNA detection of these dangerous bacteria are done with polymerase chain reaction in-vitro diagnostic testing of urine samples.
Accuracy of Our Tests
Our tests use specificity and sensitivity as methods of performance and accuracy. Sensitivity is the level of accuracy of the test to identify positive test results correctly. Specificity describes the accuracy of the test to identify negative results correctly. Our tests are 99% accurate when testing is performed within the proper timeframe after initial exposure.
Testing Yourself Is Easy
To test yourself with one of our kits, just follow the instructions included with the kit. Then return the samples in the pre-paid shipping box we provide. There is no need to fast for blood tests, but you should not urinate for an hour before collecting a urine sample.
Lab processing of your samples takes from two to seven days. An email will be sent to you as soon as the results are available. Your confidential results will be posted to your secure iDNA online account.
30-Day Money-Back Guarantee
With iDNA, you have a 30-day money-back guarantee. If you are not 100% satisfied with your at-home STD testing service, you will receive a full refund (minus shipping and handling fees).
Testing is Private and Anonymous
At iDNA, we believe the only person who needs to know your test result is you. Our team does everything within its power to keep your personal information and test results 100% confidential. Our company is HIPAA compliant and we closely abide by state and federal laws that regulate medical privacy. A positive test result is only reported when required by state or federal law to government health agencies. But this reporting is private. The data is tracked for purposes of public health only. Your test results can be deleted from our system at any time you like.
Your testing is anonymous because in our secure, HIPAA-compliant system, you are identified only by a random number. The personal information you submit to iDNA is used to allow for transactions and gives you the ability to log in to check results.
