HOW DOES THE COVID19 Ab RAPID TEST WORK?
The COVID19Ab test is an instant serological test. It detects the presence of IgG and IgM antibodies to Covid-19 – not the virus. The test consists of two components, an IgG component, and an IgM component. The test cassette also includes test Control component, indicating that the proper volume of specimen has been added and membrane wicking has occurred and the test has been activated correctly.
IgM positive result indicates current or recent infection with the SARS-CoV-2 virus. IgM antibodies are usually detected 3-5 days post symptom onset in symptomatic patients and around 7 days post- infection in asymptomatic patients.
IgG positive result indicates past exposure to SARS-CoV-2. IgG antibodies are usually produced 21 days post-infection and can be detected for months to years later. The duration of human immunity to SARS-CoV-2 remains to be determined.
IgM and IgG positive result indicate recent SARS-CoV-2 infection that occurred between one to two months prior to performed test.
Negative result does not preclude SARS-CoV-2 infection and should not be used as the sole basis for patient management decisions. Negative results must be combined with other clinical observations, patient history, and epidemiological information.SCHEDULE NOW
