Professional Antibody Rapid Onsite Testing via “Zoom”
- Online “Zoom” sessions, supervised by trained nurse, from just £14 per test
- Results in 15 minutes
- Optimal for testing between 18 and 35 days after initial exposure
- Minimum package is 25 tests and up to 3 x 1 hour Zoom sessions to carry out the testing process.
The testing can be carried out either at your workplace or at another suitable location, with the Nurse supervising the process via Zoom. Alternatively, we can arrange for a nurse to visit your workplace and carry out the testing for you.
These are professional test kits using a single drop of blood to determine the levels of antibodies (IgM and IgG) using a rapid test device. LFIA (Lateral Flow ImmunoAssay) screening kits have been approved for sale in the UK by the MHRA and carry CE certification for use across Europe.
The test itself is carried out using a small lancet similar to that used for a diabetes finger-prick test. It is a quick and simple process and the online nurse will ensure the correct procedures are followed; they will also provide advice on the next steps to be taken, including providing assistance with a follow-up PCR swab for laboratory testing if necessary following a positive result.
The results are shown by two lines on the test device – similar to reading a pregnancy test result – one for IgM (the antibody initially created by the body to determine the best way to fight the infection) and IgG (the “mass-produced” antibody used to fight and kill the virus and clear the infection).
Unlike AntiGen testing, which looks for the DNA of the virus in the initial stages of infection, AntiBody testing looks for the bodies’ response to the virus, so is more effective in the latter stages of infection when the levels of the virus have declined (so more difficult to detect using AntiGen testing) and the Antibody levels have risen.
