Covid-19 is a virus affecting every country worldwide. Since it was first detected in China, health professionals have come a long way in the battle to fight this deadly disease. Today there are different ways to test for Covid-19, and this helps to cure infected people. 

What is Antibody Testing and why is it important?

Antibody testing or Serology testing is one of the ways to test for Covid-19 in individuals. It is a blood test that helps to detect if you are infected with Covid-19. The aim of the test is to check your blood for antibodies, which shows whether you have had any past infection with the virus. 

Antibody testing is usually done after a person has fully recovered from Covid-19. To test for antibodies, a healthcare professional takes a blood sample either from the finger or by drawing blood from a vein the arm. The sample is then checked for any developed antibodies that help to fight the virus. 

Antibodies are proteins that provide protection against diseases that has already affected you. For example, with Covid-19, when you are infected your body produces antibodies which help to fight the effects of the virus, and also provides protection so you will not be infected by the same virus again.

When antibodies are detected in your body during the Covid-19 antibody test, it means you were once infected with Covid-19. Meaning your body has developed proteins to help you fight the infection. These tests are not used to diagnose new cases of Covid-19 infection. This is because the body usually produces antibodies between 1-3 weeks after you have been infected.

You can opt for antibody testing at any available healthcare provider or laboratory to check your status. If you test positive, it does not necessarily mean you have Covid-19. It just shows that antibodies have been detected, this means that they may have been produced from an infection with Covid-19. There is also a possibility that your body has produced antibodies from an infection with a different virus similar or in the same family as Covid-19.

Having these antibodies means that you are protected from getting infected with the virus again. The only problem is there is no guarantee of how much or how long you will stay protected with the antibodies present in your system. Research shows that there are some confirmed cases of reinfection with some people who have the antibodies in their system, but it is still rare.

When you get a Covid-19 test, it is important to know the type of test you are taking to help you understand what your result means. Most at times, a second antibody test is taken to confirm the results of the first for accuracy. If you test positive during the antibody test, it does not mean you are safe from the virus, and you still need to protect yourself properly.

If you test negative for the antibody test, it means you may have never been infected with Covid-19. This does not mean you don’t have the virus, because antibodies are produced between 1-3 weeks after a person is infected. Some people take longer to develop antibodies after they have been infected, others do not develop the antibodies at all.

The antibody test does not detect current infections, so you may be still be infected. This means that you might develop symptoms after the antibody test. Immunoglobulin M (IgM), which is found mainly in the blood and lymph fluid, is the first antibody to be made by the body to fight a new infection.  If you test positive for IgM antibodies you are fighting the virus.  Immediately you start developing symptoms, you have to contact your healthcare provider for a viral test. The viral test helps to detect the virus by using your fluid from your body, usually from the nostrils. 

Why is early testing for Covid-19 important?

Many healthcare professionals advise you to take a test for Covid-19. You might be wondering, why should I test for Covid-19 when there are no symptoms. You might be asymptomatic to Covid-19. This means that you do not develop any symptoms of Covid-19, which makes it easy to spread. Early testing for Covid-19 helps to detect the virus quickly, which helps you get faster care and recovery.

This COVID-19 IgG/IgM Rapid Test is a rapid lateral flow chromatographic immunoassay intended for the qualitative detection and differentiation Of IgM and IgG antibodies to SARS-COV-2 in human venous whole blood (sodium EDTA), serum, plasma (sodium EDTA) and fingerstick whole blood. Our COVID- 19 IgG/19M Rapid Test Device is intended for use as an aid in identifying individuals with an adaptive immune response to SARS-COV-2, indicating recent or prior infection.

At this time, it is unknown for how long antibodies persist following infection and if the presence of antibodies confers protective Immunity, the our COVID- 19 IgG/IgM Rapid Test Device should not be used to diagnose acute SARS-CoV-2 infection. Use of this test with all authorized specimen types is limited to laboratories certified under the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments of 1988 (CLIA), 42 U_SC. 263a, that meet requirements to perform moderate or high complexity tests.  We also have a test kit that is CLIA waived for Point of Care settings.

The sampling done with the rapid COVID-19 antibody test kit cassette using lateral flow from Rapid Connect Medical will give you the IgG and IgM detectable diagnostics results from between two and ten minutes. It can be used for reference in combination with the results from an RT-PCR (reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction) test. A single finger prick to draw blood can be used with our kit that detects antibodies.  This positive or negative result can be detected as soon as 3 days after exposure to COVID-19 (sometimes before the onset of symptoms occur).  Knowing if you have active igM antibodies even in the first week of infection can help get the best treatment for an infected person.

If you do test positive, potentially exposed, or have traveled to a region with high infection rates, you should seek care from your doctor for treatment and continue to test for IgG antibodies daily until you are cleared to leave quarantine. The sensitivity, specificity, and accuracy or our antibody test kit is very high.  This testing method for the public gives real time results and helps to identify initial infection before the severe flu like symptoms begin.  This kit is intended to be administered by a health care professionals and providers at a clinic or other health care facilities.  Many of the faulty test kits were removed from the FDA EUA website; all of our test kits are authorized by the FDA and their data appears and is included on that website.  Consumers can trust the validity and quality of the antibody test kits sold by Rapid Connect Medical.

The kits used for diagnostic tests for COVID-19 antibodies are usually designed for research use or qualitative detection of coronavirus, and not home use. Also, they can only be used to test the presence of IgG and IgM antibodies against SARS-CoV-2. Since they are aiding tools to RT-PCR or CT scanning, a clinical diagnosis of COVID-19 should be done by a healthcare professional or physician.

An antibody detection test cassette contains antigens from SARS-CoV-2 combined with gold nanoparticles. The device has two wells (one for specimen and one buffer) and a control region on the upper end.  Two types of antibodies are of great importance in diagnostic tests for COVID-19 antibodies: Immunoglobulin M (IgM) and Immunoglobulin G (IgG). 

The importance of the gold nanoparticles in the detection test cassette is to create a colored line in the control region.  Antigens targeting a specific antibody are located in their respective regions on the nitrocellulose membrane of the test cassette. The IgG and IgM regions are coated with anti-human antibodies for each.
