HPV - genetic testing (16 genotypes )

Material: Other material
Price of the study: 180 PLN
Waiting time: result after 10 working days

  • Advance appointment booking required.

Luxmed collection points

Preparation for the study


  • Moisturizers, intimate hygiene products, contraceptive gels (with the exception of a gel called Advantage - S 庐 Bioadhesive Contraceptive Gel) do not interfere with the test.

Detailed for women

  • The test should not be performed:
    - during menstruation,
    - during treatment with antibiotics,
    - during treatment with vaginal preparations (globules, creams),
    - when irrigations are used,
    - within 48 hours after the last sexual intercourse.
    On the day of the test, the genital area should be washed without using soap or intimate hygiene gels.
    If treatment has been used, a 3-5 day break is recommended between the end of treatment
    and the performance of the test.
  • The test material in women is a cervical swab.

Detailed for men

  • The test material is a swab from the genital groove.
    If treatment was used, it is recommended to take a 3-5 day break between the end of treatment,
    and the performance of the test.
    Before taking the material for the test:
    - do not use antibiotics, steroids, medicated creams,
    - do not wash genitals for at least 48 hours (72 hours recommended to increase the effectiveness of virus detection),
    - do not have sex for at least 24 hours.


Samples brought from outside are not accepted for testing.
It is necessary to attach a document-"Referral and consent for genetic testing(HPV,Chlamydia trachomatis) LUXMED. Available in the Patient's Essentials-Downloadable forms.


The test is designed to detect the presence of HPV DNA. The test detects the presence of two

not oncogenic virus types : 6 and 11, responsible for the development of condylomata acuminata

( condylomata) and oncogenic types of HPV : types 16 and 18, 45 and 11 genotypes from the group

With high oncogenic potential viz: 31,33,3539,51,52,56,58,59,66,68, without genotyping them.

The test is performed by polymerase chain reaction( PCR) in real time ( Real Time PCR).

The performance of this test is recommended especially to exclude / confirm condylomata acuminata ( condylomata acuminata) and in couples planning offspring and pregnant women . In the case of pregnant women, detection of genotypes 6 and 11 can be an indication of

for delivery by cesarean section (risk of infection of the baby's respiratory tract during natural delivery).
