How it Works​

About The Test

COVID-19 IgG/lgM Rapid Test is a lateral flow immunoassay for the detection of anti-SARS-CoV-2 IgG and IgM antibodies in human serum, plasma or whole blood. COVID-19 IgG/lgM Rapid Test is in cassette test format and is supplied with detection buffer and capillary tube. The results will be available within 10-15 minutes. The test is carried out by a trained and qualified appointee in order to ensure test reliability.

How Accurate Is The Data?

The performance of these tests is described by their “sensitivity,” or their ability to identify those with infection with or antibodies to Covid-19  (true positive rate), and their “specificity,” or their ability to identify those without infection with or antibodies to Covid-19 (true negative rate). The test has demonstrated a 97.1% sensitivity and 97.8% specificity.

How it Works​

About The Test

Finding a reliable and safe test for our patients has been a priority for us. We have researched many to ensure the test that we offer provides trusted results. We have chosen to use the Abbott COVID-19 antibody test and our laboratory uses technology created by leading brands for diagnostic tests. The test looks for specific IgG antibodies, which appear during an established immune reaction, rather than IgM antibodies which are triggered by an acute immune response and are therefore less reliable.

How Accurate Is The Data?

The performance of these tests is described by their “sensitivity,” or their ability to identify those with infection with or antibodies to Covid-19  (true positive rate), and their “specificity,” or their ability to identify those without infection with or antibodies to Covid-19 (true negative rate). 

Abbott laboratories partners report a sensitivity of at least 97.5% and a specificity of at least 99.8%.  The Abbott Antibody test is 99% accurate making the most accurate of tests currently available in the UK
