What is the BioSURE Covid-19 Antibody Test?
The BioSURE COVID-19 Triple Antibody Test is unique and fully UK developed and manufactured. Our test can detect antibodies from as soon as they are available. Everyone produces these at different times, some people produce these as early as 4 days post symptoms. This is vital for an effective test and trace system especially for those who experience mild symptoms or are asymptomatic.
Each test is a single use in Vitro diagnostic test for the qualitative detection of IgA, IgG and IgM antibodies to COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) in human whole blood (finger prick or venous), serum or plasma.
This test is CE marked and is registered with the MHRA.
How Does the Antibody Test Work?
The BioSURE Triple Antibody Test is a simple to perform, finger prick test which only needs 5ul of capillary blood and gives results in 10 minutes.
The BioSURE COVID-19 Triple Antibody Test detects IgA, IgG and IgM Antibodies specific to the SARS-CoV-2 virus ( COVID-19).
Why Test for Antibodies?
- It is important for you to be able to differentiate between COVID-19 symptoms and those of a common Winter cold/flu symptoms. Setting the baseline now will help you make better informed decisions for your workplace.
- When IgM and IgA antibodies are detected without the presence of IgG the person is newly infected and is still likely to be infectious.
- An IgG only positive result means the person has previously been infected and their immune system has produced antibodies.
- Evidence is increasingly demonstrating that those who have had COVID-19 and produce IgG antibodies are very unlikely to be able to pass on the virus.
- Knowledge about immunity is still developing. Whilst there is evidence of COVID-19 IgG antibodies declining after 8-weeks, any future infection should be quickly recognised by the person’s immune system due to T-cell memory. The only way to detect reactivated antibodies is through regular antibody testing, although there are currently no known UK cases of reinfection.
