Detects: Syphilis infection.
Transmitted via skin-to-skin contact with an infected individual, syphilis is an infection that if left untreated can cause serious irreversible damage. Fortunately, if detected early on syphilis can be easily cured in most cases. Common symptoms begin with a single sore, called a chancre, at the site of infection. This sore will go away on its own, even if left untreated. Not everyone who is infected shows symptoms, so it is important to test if you feel that you might be at risk. This simple blood test can determine your infection status and help keep you healthy.
