Please note that the antibody tests were developed for use and have been validated on venous blood samples (blood taken from a vein by a medical professional. The test has not been validated for samples of blood taken from a fingerprick. This may affect the accuracy of the test. This is why we only offer the test when a medical professional takes your sample from the vein, as recommended by the manufacturer.
Why take an Antibody test?
Antibody tests look for evidence of the immune response to covid-19. The aim to answer the question: have I been exposed to COVID-19 and produced an immune response?
If you want to see if you are carrying covid-19 now, you need to use an antigen test (PCR test).
