COVID-19 IgG Antibody TestTHIS IS AN ABBOTTS TEST 


NB! THIS IS NOT A HOME TEST KIT, THE TEST IS CARRIED OUT WITHIN OUR CLINIC.


This test is a venous blood draw test, which gets sent off for analysis.

IgG antibody testing can tell whether a person has been previously infected, as the host immune system reacts to the infection by SARS-CoV-2 by producing antibodies from a few days to two wee
ks after the onset of symptoms. Specific IgG antibodies are produced in the later stages of infection to SARS-CoV-2, and are detectable after RNA is no longer detectable.
The persistence of IgG antibodies allows identification of people who have been infected by SARS-CoV-2. 

This test has a minimum sensitivity of 98% and a specificity of 100%, with no cross-reactivity with other viruses.

COVID-19 PCR Swab Test
NB! THIS IS NOT A HOME TEST KIT. THE TEST IS CARRIED OUT WITHIN OUR CLINIC.


PCR (polymerase chain reaction) samples can come from several different sites in the patient. The simplest is the nasal swab taken from well inside the nose. The back of the throat is another option.

To find evidence of the virus, researchers use PCR to copy and amplify any segments of viral genetic code found in the sample, which makes it easier to detect. This typically involves adding reagents and enzymes, and raising and lowering the temperature of the mixture, known as thermal cycling.

Antigen testing reveals whether someone has a current infection and could therefore pass Covid-19 on to others. PCR is the gold standard in viral diagnostics.

COVID-19 Rapid Antibody TestNB! THIS IS NOT A HOME TEST KIT. THE TEST IS CARRIED OUT WITHIN OUR CLINIC.

This kit is intended for use as a tool to assist in the diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2 infections. It is also intended as a tool for carrying out serological epidemiological investigations.

The COVID-19 Rapid Test is a qualitative lateral flow immunoassay for the simultaneous detection of IgM and IgG antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 in whole blood, serum or plasma specimens.

The test cassette contains recombinant SARS-CoV-2 antigen conjugated to coloured particles. When a specimen is added to the sample well of the cassette, any IgM and IgG present in the specimen will bind to the antigen conjugate, forming coloured coronavirus antigen-antibody complexes. This mixture migrates laterally along the membrane to the test region. In this test region, anti-human IgM and anti-human IgG have been immobilised onto the membrane. These capture any IgM and IgG complexes that have formed, resulting in the appearance of coloured lines.

Therefore, if the specimen contains SARS-CoV-2 IgM antibodies, a coloured line will appear in the IgM test line region. If the specimen contains SARS-CoV-2 IgG antibodies, a coloured line will appear in the IgG test line region. To serve as an internal control, a coloured line will always appear in the control line region, indicating that the proper volume of specimen and buffer has been added, and correct procedure has been followed.
