Covid-19 Antibody Test

NEW COVID-19 Antibody Test

Find out your level of antibodies against the COVID-19 Coronavirus

 

What level of protective antibodies do you have following your vaccination against COVID-19, or if you’ve already had the infection?

Find the answer to these questions with our COVID-19 Antibody Test.

  • This COVID-19 antibody test for the detection of IgG antibodies to SARS-CoV- 2 is highly accurate (98.9% sensitivity and 99.8% specificity) 

  • Provides a positive or negative result PLUS a numerical value so that you can track your antibody levels.

We recommend that you monitor your antibody levels on a regular basis, at least every 4 months.

How to order a test? 

  1. Purchase a home test kit online from our Shop. A test kit will be posted to you. A fingerprick blood sample is all that is required. You post your blood sample back to us at the clinic for analysis. Results will be emailed to you within 3-5 working days (from receipt of your blood sample).

What does it mean if I have the COVID-19 Antibody?

If you test positive for the COVID-19 Antibody, this indicates that you have developed antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 virus after being exposed to the virus either through infection or having a vaccine. The antibody does not ensure that you are protected from becoming ill again if exposed to Covid-19, or for how long any protection may last, as research is ongoing in this area.

COVID-19 Antibody Test – Pre-test Instructions

  1. COVID-19 antibodies increase after exposure to the COVID-19 virus and increase after your vaccination. The rate at which the antibodies develop after exposure to the virus, or vaccination has been shown to vary. We therefore recommend that you do the test at least 3-4 weeks after infection of vaccination. This helps to ensure the antibodies have developed sufficiently so that they can be measured, reducing the likelihood of a false negative.   

  2. Please note, antibody tests should not be used to diagnose someone as being currently sick with COVID-19. To check for a current, active infection, you need a do a PCR test.

  3. People should not use the test if they are taking immunosuppressants (e.g., steroids), cancer therapy.

  4. Customers must be aged 16 years or over to take this test.

Order online and we will post your kit directly to your home.   

Collect just a few drops of blood and post your sample back to us for laboratory analysis.
