Covid-19 Antibody Testing

Covid-19 antibody tests can be used to detect whether you have any Covid-19 antibodies in your blood. If you have not had the vaccine and your results show evidence of antibodies, then it is likely that you have been previously exposed to the virus – this will offer you some level of protection against Covid-19 in the future.

We recommend antibody testing only for people who have had symptoms of possible infection, more than 14 days previously. Or in some circumstances following a positive rt-PCR result. It is not suitable for general screening of people who have had no symptoms. The test has limitations that can make it difficult to interpret.

We currently offer 2 types of Covid-19 Antibody Tests.
