Covid-19 Test kits and Covid-19 Test Antibody kits

With the symptoms of COVID-19 sometimes taking up to two weeks to show in infected patients, it is rapidly becoming vitally important for swift testing of individuals who believe that they may have come into contact with the virus. There is no perfect test for Coronavirus antibodies and rapid tests have understandably received criticism which is why we are using a UKAS accredited lab to test finger prick blood samples which can be taken at home. It is not yet known how Coronavirus antibodies confer protection from further infection but it is at least a starting point to understand if you have antibodies.
