There are two Strepelle options, Standard and Premium.

Strepelle Standard Service - 3 Days

Strepelle Standard utilises the gold standard method of testing, Enrichment Culture Method (ECM) and results are usually returned within three days.

Strepelle Premium Service - Same Day*

Strepelle Premium uses PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction), which is similar to the technology which is used to test for Covid antigens.

PCR is as accurate as ECM but has the advantage of being significantly faster and enables our laboratory to report results for Strep B on the same day, if samples are received before 11.00 AM*. This fast turnaround time is particularly important for pregnant women who are using the test close to full term.
