How to does the AbC-19™️ rapid antibody test work?

From a finger-prick sample of blood, the AbC-19™ Antibody Rapid Test is able to detect SARS-CoV-2 IgG neutralising antibodies to the full spike protein, and will determine if the body has produced a measurable immune response indicating a previous infection with COVID-19 virus or vaccination.

It will not detect current infection.

All test components are supplied

- Lance patient finger

- Collect patient fingerprick blood sample into capillary pipette

- Apply blood sample to test cassette

- Apply capsule of buffer solution

- Wait 20 minutes

- Read result (one line negative, two lines positive)

- Do not read after 30 minutes

When to use the AbC-19™️ Rapid Test?

It is recommended to wait at least 14 days after the onset of symptoms of following full vaccination before using the AbC-19™️ Rapid Test.

AbC-19™️ is also suitable for non-vaccinated people or those who did not experience COVID-19 symptoms, as many individuals may have potentially had COVID-19 without knowing.

It is not known how long COVID-19 neutralising antibodies stay present in the body. However, researchers do know they typically persist for several months despite declining over a period of time. Neutralising antibodies can potentially provide protection from infection during this period although immunity is not inferred and re-infection is possible.
