COVID-19 IgG Antibody
COVID-19 IgG Antibody Test
We have been working tirelessly since February 2020 to supply the COVID-19 PCR testing to our clients and more recently, NHS England.
In addition to the COVID-19 PCR test we can now offer the COVID-19 IgG Antibody test. We were not prepared to offer this sooner until we had completed our due diligence. The manufacturer asserts diagnostic sensitivity and specificity at 100%. The assay is IVD CE marked. Research shows that IgG antibodies can be detected approximately 21 days from exposure to COVID-19.
To carry out the IgG test we require a serum sample (gold top SST vial). This can be obtained by either a venous blood draw or from a finger prick sample (using the mini collect system). This sample must then be sent to our laboratory for analysis. The IgG test provides a quantitative result as either “Negative” or “Positive”.
The test is with a turnaround time of 1 working day from receipt of sample in the laboratory.
From all of the team here, we hope you are staying safe and wish you and your loved ones good health.
