Pinches Medical and Wellbeing is now offering a Covid-19 antibody test to all.
*Update 28 May 2020* Our lab has now run out of these tests sorry! We’ll let you know if more become available.
This is the market leading test, manufactured by Abbott*, that determines if you have antibodies as a result of contracting Covid-19. This could help your personal and business planning in the context of following government advice.
- Tests for antibodies – determining if your immune system has fought the Covid-19 virus
- Test conducted at home, maintaining social distancing – you are sent a pin-prick / sample bottle to send off with full instructions
- Price £60.00 per test – including the kit, return postage/packaging and the detailed instructions
- Turnaround time is 4-7 days – depending on weekends and the postal service
To order test(s) for you or to arrive at your team’s home addresses please telephone reception Mon-Fri between 9:30 – 12:30 (01625 704777) or email firstname.lastname@example.org
*In the Abbott IgG immunoassay, we are confident that we are offering the right test, indeed probably the best available at the time of writing – a Public Health England (PHE) approved laboratory test with, according to the manufacturer, 100% sensitivity reported in the detection of IgG antibodies 14 days or more following onset of illness (which means no-one who has had a response will slip through the net). With a reported specificity of 99.63%, we can also be very confident too that a positive test really is positive for Covid-19 alone – this high score tells us that very few positive results are falsely recognising another virus as Covid-19 (37 in 10,000).
