FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers

The Antibody test detects the IgG and IgM antibodies responses to SARS-CoV-2 spike (S protein). The spike protein may be present in either natural immunity or vaccine induced immunity.

The quantification of the antibody response can help determine the specific antibody titer. So in addition to being able to identify if an individual has present antibodies to covid, this also provides a value which can determine how much impact the antibodies have had. After a full Covid vaccination, providing the individual has had a sufficient antibody response to all Covid vaccines this should then show that the antibody uptake has occurred.
The specificity of the Antibody test is 99.98% with sensitivity of 98.8% (14 days or later after diagnosis with PCR).

  • Sensitivity: the ability of a test to correctly identify patients with a disease
  • Specificity: the ability of a test to correctly identify people without the disease
  • Immunoglobulin G (IgG): This is the most common antibody. It’s in blood and other body fluids, and protects against bacterial and viral infections. IgG can take time to form after an infection or vaccination
  • Immunoglobulin M (IgM): Found mainly in blood and lymph fluid, this is the first antibody the body makes when it fights a new infection.
  • Antibody titer: the levels of antibody found

While PCR is the most widely accepted form of testing we do advise that you check with your airline & country of travel before booking as the requirements differ from airline to airline and restrictions vary for each country. Some countries have stricter requirements & may not accept tests that are not signed by a practitioner. The requirements are constantly changing so we do recommend you check for updates closer to your time of travel.

*Please note that test results may take up to 24 hours.
