With results in only 10 minutes, the COVID-19 antibody test is a finger prick test which identifies if the body has developed an antibody response to a COVID-19 infection.
It is not a viral test to identify if you currently have COVID-19.
The test is highly sensitive and specific detecting IgG antibodies, however no test can be 100% accurate:
>99.9% sensitivity - this means that among 1,000 people who have had coronavirus, almost 100% of them will correctly test positive.
98% specificity - this means that among 1,000 people who have not had coronavirus, 980 of them will correctly test negative

Please note that until proven, the presence of COVID-19 antibodies does not mean that you have immunity against further infection of the virus.
The antibody test should only be performed 21 days after recovery from COVID-19 symptoms or 28 days after contact with someone with COVID-19 symptoms. This is to ensure that there has been enough time for detectable antibodies to have built up in the blood.
The COVID-19 Rapid Test is a qualitative lateral flow immunoassay for the simultaneous detection of IgM and IgG antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 in whole blood, serum or plasma specimens.
Testing should only be conducted 21 days after patient has recovered from COVID-19 symptoms or 21 days after being in contact with a person with COVID-19 symptoms.
Where a positive result is confirmed - does NOT guarantee immunity to further infection and further contraction of coronavirus is possible. Length of any immunity is not known and ability to spread the virus is still possible. Continuation of following national pandemic protection guidelines is still recommended.
Where a negative result is confirmed - does NOT necessarily mean infection did not occur. Confirm to the testee that they may not yet have built up enough antibodies.
