COVID-19 IGM/IGG ANTIBODY TESTING

FIND OUT IF YOU'RE IMMUNE

IgM-IgG combined Antibody test for Covid-19 is used to qualitatively detect IgG and IgM antibodies of the novel coronavirus in human serum, plasma, or whole blood in vitro. Detection of Covid-19 IgM antibodies may indicate a recent exposure, whereas detection of Covid-19 IgG antibodies may indicate you've been exposed longer ago. This test may help to identify immunity to the virus, providing valuable insight to anyone who wants to understand their risk of becoming ill or transmitting the virus to others. If IgM on the test is positive, this indicates an early infection when symptoms may begin to show. If both IgM and IgG are positive this indicates you are a week or two into the infection. This is called the transition phase. If IgG is positive this indicates a later infection probably 10 days or more post fever and that you are in the convalescent phase. Though having IgG antibodies gives you protection from the virus, it doesn't mean you are immune for the rest of your life. You could get sick again as duration of immunity has not yet been determined. This finger prick test can be mailed directly to you. You simply complete the test and send it back overnight. Once received by Immuno labs, it takes 24-48 hours to get the results. The IgG Antibody test has an overall sensitivity of 96.52%, and a specificity of 98.52%. The IgM Antibody test has an overall sensitivity of 94.07%, and a specificity of 97.73%.
