COVID-19
Antibody Testing

Reduce the spread of infection I Manage employee absences
Minimise risk to your business operations

With fast developing news on the coronavirus outbreak, employers are having to put in place contingency plans to minimise the spread of infection.

Employees who have obtained advice from a GP or 111 to isolate at home will have triggered their right to sick pay, and therefore employers are querying how to handle sick pay and self-isolation.

NHS England/Public Health England advice is for high risk individuals to be tested for conoravirus if they have travelled back from an affected area or come in to close contact with someone with a confirmed case. Updated advice can be found at https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-information-for-the-public

How it works

  • Essential for workforce surveillance. Antibodies do not guarantee immunity but are likely to offer some protection;
  • Easy finger prick sample at home which is sent for laboratory analysis;
  • Accurate and reliable to specifically detect COVID-19 IgG (longer lasting) antibodies;

The process

  • Kits sent and returned by first class Royal Mail or choose a courier option;
  • On site clinics can be arranged;
  • Certificates available (for international travel or attending sites).

Turnaround times

  • Results usually available within 24 – 48 hours of being received at the laboratory;
  • Emailed to you securely;

The testing kit

How reliable is it?

We have reviewed many products in circulation and have only now decided to offer antibody testing because we have a trusted product which is specific to COVID-19 and sensitive.

Our advice is to absolutely avoid any kit which claims to give you a result “on the day” – we have been worried by the lack of accuracy of these rapid diagnostic tests, some of which are wrong as often as 1 in 3 times.

Our UK-based UKAS accredited laboratory which has successfully undertaken thousands of PCR swabs is now analysing finger prick blood samples for “IgG” antibodies specific to COVID-19. This kit supplied by American firm Epitope Diagnostics inc (EDI) who are based in San Diego and who have been certified and licensed by the State of California Department of Health Services as medical device manufacturers since 2004. EDI are ISO 13485:2016 certified.

The Enzyme Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) test is specific to COVID-19 (that is to say that other infectious agents should not falsely trigger the test); it is also specific to “IgG” which is the long term antibody associated with immunity although it must be stressed that it is not yet known how the Coronavirus antibodies equate to a level or duration of immunity – the test differentiates IgG from the short term antibodies such as “IgM”.

As with all of these kits they undergo regular testing to ensure accuracy and reliability which on the last occasion were 100% accurate for both positive and negative samples.
