The SARS-CoV-2 Rapid Antibody Test is a CE marked lateral flow rapid chromatographic immunoassay intended for qualitative detection of IgM
and IgG antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 in human serum, plasma or whole blood.

Similar to laboratory instruments, the test it detects antibodies that your body has produced in response to exposure to the virus by providing a qualitative result of “yes” or “no” with regards to the presence of IgG and/or IgM antibodies.

The SARS-CoV-2 Rapid Antibody Test is intended for use as an aid in identifying individuals with an adaptive immune response to SARS-CoV-2, indicating prior infection.

It is performed with a small capillary blood sample from the fingertip or a blood vial. This is equivalent to about one or two drops of blood.

The benefits of the SARS-CoV-2 Rapid Antibody Test in short:

  • Getting a quick result (10-15 minutes) – no need for follow-ups to discuss test results
  • Easy handling and administration
  • Only needing a very small capillary sample of blood
  • Access to testing in areas where laboratory testing is not available

*NOTE – We can arrange for your test to be picked up at our Northcote Road Clinic free of charge should you wish to. Please select Local Pickup add your preferred collection day, time and contact details to the order notes when checking out.

The covid antibody test will tell you within a few minutes whether or not you have antibodies to the COVID-19 virus.

Antibodies tell us whether or not you have had the virus at some stage and whether you now have some form of immunity against the virus.

Because the virus is so new and we are still learning about how it behaves we do not know how long the antibodies last, and how long they confer immunity for.

The test is very simple. We need 3 drops of blood – this can be from a finger prick or a venous sample. Once the reagent is added to the blood testing kit, it’ll give us an instant answer as to whether you have antibodies.

These are made in Germany so comply with strict EU standards. As such the accuracy of the tests are very good.

Test sensitivity compared to PCR samples taken 7-14 days after symptoms showed a sensitivity of 92.59%

Test sensitivity compared to PCR samples taken 14 days after symptoms showed a sensitivity of 99.03%

This is not a test for acute symptoms. This is a test to take after you have had the symptoms to tell you if you have some immunity.

No you should contact the NHS online here or on 119 to order a PCR swab test

The SARS-CoV-2 Rapid Antibody Test is a CE marked lateral flow rapid chromatographic immunoassay intended for qualitative detection of IgM and IgG antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 in human serum, plasma or whole blood. Similar to laboratory instruments, it detects antibodies that an exposed host has produced in response to exposure to the virus by providing a qualitative result of “yes” or “no” with regards to the presence of IgG and/or IgM antibodies. The SARS-CoV-2 Rapid Antibody Test is intended for use as an aid in identifying individuals with an adaptive immune response to SARS-CoV-2, indicating prior infection. It can be performed with a small capillary blood sample (20 μL) from the fingertip or a venous blood vial. This is equivalent to about one or two drops of blood.
