Coronavirus Antibody testing COVID-19
With more than 7 million cases of Coronavirus ( COVID-19) and more than 400,000 deaths, many of us may have already had the infection without knowing it. If you have had the infection, coronavirus antibody testing may help. Whilst there is still considerable debate in the scientific community, developing coronavirus antibodies is thought to offer you some protection from further infection.
With the easing of the restrictions in the UK, you may now be getting back to work, school, university or travelling. But have you already been infected without realising it? We can easily check this by offering you coronavirus antibody testing. Knowing your coronavirus antibody status might help you and your employer evaluate risk in the workplace
Our Coronavirus Antibody COVID-19 test has been tested and validated by Public Health England and is processed by a UKAS accredited laboratory. The results will be interpreted by a consultant in Infectious Diseases so you can therefore be re-assured of the quality of the test and its expert interpretation.
Our Coronavirus Antibody test has a specificity of 99.6% and a sensitivity of 100%. Please be aware , however, that no test is 100% accurate and not everyone who has had Coronavirus infection develops antibodies. It is also very important that you continue to practise social distancing and wear appropriate PPE (personal protective equipment) even if you have antibodies
Please note it may taking up to 2 working days for the sample to reach the laboratory and then a further 1-2 workings days for the results of the test. This can be expedited by requesting special delivery at additional cost. See our FAQs for further information
