Our sexual health services
Preventx is the largest provider of remote sexual health services across the UK
SH.UK is a sexual health service that provides free and easy access to home sexual health testing, in partnership with the NHS.
SHL.UK is a discreet sexual health service for Londoners, providing remote testing, contraception and treatment.
test.me offers easy to access at home sexual health testing for anyone who doesn’t qualify for a free STI test.
The Preventx in-house laboratory is a UKAS ISO 15189 accredited medical laboratory (no. 7568) and adheres to a strict quality system.
We only process our own tests, from our own sampling kits and with a focus on sexual health. We don’t process tests for anyone else, so no other work is more important or higher priority.
Preventx is the only digital sexual health service with its own in-house laboratory, and we have developed and evolved our processes specifically to test the small samples that are produced through self-sampling. For example, we can carry out up to six tests on a single finger-prick blood sample, plus confirmatory testing and assays such as quantitative RPR.
