Who should take this test?
If you have had symptoms of Covid-19 at least 14 days or more and want to confirm the presence of antibodies.
This test detects the presence of IgG and IgM antibodies to SARS-CoV-2.
The host immune system reacts to the infection by SARS-CoV-2 by producing antibodies from a few days to 2 weeks and beyond.
Specific IgG antibodies are produced in the later stages of infection to SARS-CoV-2, and are detectable after RNA is no longer detectable.
The persistence of IgG + IgM antibodies allows identification of people who have been infected by SARS-CoV-2. The length of time that these antibodies remain detectable differs from person to person.
ZoomDoc can provide this test to all patients aged 16 years and above.
When should this test be undertaken?
We recommend that you undertake this test from 15 days after the onset of symptoms.

This simple finger prick blood test will determine and confirm if you have antibodies from a previous infection to Covid-19. Antibody levels will reduce over time. Studies are ongoing but it is believed that they reduce and become undetectable after 3 to 12 months. “
