Antibody Lateral Flow Test Kit SARS-COV-2 (IgM & IgG) - Finger Prick
Managed to get the product on the same day. It wasn't painful. It was much easier to use than other kits I have tried. Great customer service. Will be buying again.
Great service & speedy delivery. Really happy to have the non invasive test kits for our team they are really easy to use as they only go up the nostril, it's also much easier as the liquid is pre filled which saves a lot of faffing about trying to measure it out. Also have some of the antibody covid tests for those who done want to put a swab up the nose or people who have previously had covid or taken the vaccine. Have recommended you to several other businesses & will be back for more soon. Thank you

Stay safe with our Antibody Lateral Flow TEst Kit SARS-COV-2 (IgM & IgG) - Finger Prick Test. Find out if you previously had COVID-19 and developed Antibodies in just 15 minutes.
An Antibody test reveals if an individual has already contracted the infection, this is done by detecting antibodies in their blood or serum. Antibody Tests are not always used to diagnose current infection as it takes the body some time to produce antibodies. During the period before the adaptive immune system kicks in.
Antibody Tests can also help track the spread of the disease, giving us a more accurate representation of the COVID-19 pandemic. This can help us estimate how many individuals have already contracted with SARS-CoV-2.
A test that can distinguish IgM and IgG could give information about the phase of infection, this will then indicate how long ago the individual was infected with SARS-CoV-2.
A negative test result may occur if the test is taken early on after infection before antibodies are produced by the body. False-positive test results could also occur because of cross-reactivity with antibodies present as a result of the previous infection with other coronaviruses.
It should be noted that it can take the body a couple of weeks to supply antibodies after an antigen has caused an infection. There's also no current evidence to support that having COVID-19 antibodies equates to having immunity from catching the virus.
The SARS-CoV-2 IgG/IgM (Antibody) Rapid Test is a lateral flow chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection and differentiation of IgM and IgG antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 in human serum, plasma, venous whole blood, or capillary fingertip blood. It is intended for use as an aid in identifying individuals with an adaptive immune response to SARS-CoV-2, indicating recent or prior infection.
The SARS-CoV-2 IgG/IgM Rapid Test should not be used to diagnose acute SARS-CoV-2 infection. Results are for the detection of antibodies. IgM and IgG antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 are generally detectable in blood several days after initial infection, although the duration of time antibodies are present post-infection is not well characterized.
Individuals may have detectable virus present for several weeks following seroconversion.
Interpretations Of Results:
NEGATIVE: Only colored control lines appear in the control region (C).
Negative results do not preclude acute SARS-CoV-2 infection. If acute infection is suspected, direct testing for SARS-CoV-2 is necessary.
POSITIVE: Colored control line appears in the control region (C) and colored test line(s) appears in the test line region (G) and/or (M).
IgG positive: Colored control line appears in the control region (C) and one colored line appears in the IgG line region (G).
IgM positive: Colored control line appears in the control region (C) and one colored line appears in the IgM line region (M).
IgG and IgM positive: Colored control line appears in the control region (C), one colored line appears in the IgG line region (G), and one colored line appears in the IgM line region (M).
FALSE POSITIVE: Results for the SARS-CoV-2 IgG/IgM Rapid Test may occur due to cross-reactivity from pre-existing antibodies or other possible causes. Due to the risk of false positive results, confirmation of positive results should be considered using a second, different IgG or IgM assay.
*NOTE: The color intensity of the IgM and IgG test line(s) may vary depending on the concentration of the SARS-CoV-2 IgM antibodies and SARS-CoV-2 IgG antibodies present in the specimen.
INVALID: Control line fails to appear. Insufficient specimen volume or incorrect operation are the most likely reasons for control line failure. Review the procedure and repeat the test with a new test cassette. If the problem persists, do not use the test kit immediately and contact your local distributor.
Directions for use:
Allow the test, specimen and buffer to room temperature (15-30°C) prior to testing.
1. Remove the test from the foil pouch and use it as soon as possible. Best results will be obtained if the assay is performed within one hour.
2. Place the test on a flat and clean surface. Transfer the specimen by a Pipette or a Dropper:
- To use a Pipette for Serum, Plasma or venous Whole blood:
Transfer 10 μL of Serum, Plasma, or 15 μL of venous Whole blood specimen into the Sample Well (S), then add 2~3 drops of buffer into the Buffer Well (B) and start the timer. Avoid air bubbles in the Sample and Buffer well. See illustration below.
- To use a Dropper for Serum or Plasma:
Hold the dropper vertically and fill the capillary part of the dropper (not to exceed the capillary part) with Serum or Plasma (approximately 10 μL), then carefully dispense the specimen into the Sample Well (S), immediately add 2~3 drops of buffer into the Buffer Well (B), and start the timer. Avoid air bubbles in the Sample and Buffer well. See illustration below.
- To use a Dropper for venous Whole blood or fingertip Capillary blood:
Hold the dropper vertically, draw the specimen about 2-3mm above the capillary part and then transfer 1 full drop (approximately 15 μL) of specimen into the Sample Well (S). Immediately add 2~3 drops of buffer into the Buffer Well (B) and start the timer. Avoid air bubbles in the Sample and Buffer well. See illustration below.
3. Wait for the coloured line(s) to appear. The result should be read in 15 minutes. Do not interpret the result after 20 minutes.
Storage and Stability:
- The kit can be stored at room temperature or refrigerated (2-30°C).
- The test is stable until the expiration date printed on the sealed pouch.
- The test must remain in the sealed pouch until use.
- DO NOT FREEZE.
- Do not use it after the expiration date.
