This test is done via a PCR swab through an approved UK laboratory for COVID tests and intravenous for the antibody test.

The Abbott SARS-CoV-2 IgG and Roche Elecsys Anti-SARS-CoV-2 assays detect IgG antibodies to SARS-CoV-2, the Roche assay is a total antibody assay and will additionally detect IgM antibodies, reporting both IgG and IgM as a total antibody result. Both the Abbott and Roche assays use the same viral antigen, nucleocapsid protein, to determine antibodies against SARS-CoV-2. It is thought that antibodies against the nucleocapsid are made earlier in the immune response compared to those against other viral antigens. 

Please beware that it is the responsibility of the patients to select what time to book their tests and are solely responsible for the time of the appointments made and that the clinic or team are unable to advise on testing times.

We ask that all patients accessing these services respect our strict protocols in the interests of protecting our patients and our staff’s health and interests.
