We use the Abbott ARCHITECT SARS-CoV-2 IgG (6R86) test for analysing our Covid-19 Antibody home test kits in our lab. This is one of the two IgG tests approved by the Government for UK use. For home collection kits, we use a fully validated sample collection technique.
Our laboratory tests are carried out in the largest fully accredited laboratory in the UK which also provides pathology services for NHS Trust hospitals.
Our supplies are provided directly to our laboratory and do not impact on Government supplies and therefore we do not take resources away from the NHS.
Postal packs with home sample collection are all processed in our accredited laboratory. They are often referred to as home test kits, however it is the sample of blood that is collected at home which is then posted back to us. The test is run in the lab with results available in about two days.
We use a process using “Tinys” which are miniature versions of the same vacuum tubes used in hospitals and clinics. Testing samples using this process has been fully validated by our accredited laboratory.
The Abbott IgG coronavirus antibody we use has shown to have 99.5% specificity and 100% sensitivity.
