What are antibody tests?
Antibody tests are used to detect antibodies to the Covid-19 virus to see if you have had the virus in the past. The test works by taking a sample of your blood and testing for the presence of antibodies to see if you have developed an immune response from being exposed to the virus. It is only recently that reliable tests for the presence of antibodies have been made available here. The gold standard is the PHE approved, FDA EUA approved reagents we use, millions of which are being used around the world in the frontline for detecting the spread of SARS-Cov-2 coronavirus through our communities. There is no strong evidence yet to suggest that those who have had the virus develop long lasting immunity which could prevent them from getting the virus again.
How our test works?
A simple 3 step process – Blood test results will be interpreted after 10 – 15 minutes
A Positive Result:
means that the test did detect COVID-19 antibodies so it is likely you’ve had coronavirus before (even if you can’t recall having symptoms)
A Negative Result
means the test did not detect COVID-19 coronavirus antibodies so it is unlikely you’ve had the coronavirus before
Detects IgM & IgG anti-SARS-CoV-2 in 10 minutes
Tests for these two antibodies in the blood
IgM is what we show when we are in the acute stage of the virus
IgG is what you show when you have been exposed to the virus in the past
Whole blood specimen allows testing at point-of-care, saving crucial time
Conducted only by a qualified clinician.
Overall IgG accuracy
Making it one of the most effective screening tests
for detection of COVID019 antibodies
