HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO GET MY LAB TEST RESULTS?

Test results are generally available within 24 to 72 business hours after specimen collection.  However, note that if the HIV screen is presumptive positive, a Western Blot for confirmation purposes will be performed.  This can add an additional 3 to 7 business days to the test results.

WHY WOULD I GET A FIGHTER PANEL OF LAB TESTS?

Some competitive fighting sports require lab tests for the safety of the competitors.  Fighters need to be in top notch shape and need these tests to be eligible to compete.  Diseases that compromise your immune system can derail the best training program and knock you out of competition.

WHY DO I NEED IT?

Do you manage fighters?  Is your next fight coming up and you need to provide clean test results?

Ensuring that you or your MMA fighters, kickboxers and boxers are healthy and ready to fight is critical to staying competitive.  Many organizations require a clean bill of health before they allow fighters to compete and this panel tests for HIV and Hepatitis B and C providing the results that you need with a quick turnaround time.

With your written consent the test results can be faxed directly to your State Athletic Commission to save you time.

 

What Type of Physician Should You See?

If you have tested positive for HIV, Hepatitis B or Hepatitis C, you should see your primary care physician for a referral to an Infectious Disease physician or seek information from your local health department.
