Neutralising IgG antibodies are the type that give you protection and knowing your current antibody status means you can make better informed choices, whether your result is positive or negative.
IgG antibody levels change over time. They go up a few weeks after vaccination or infection, peaking after a month or so and then decline over a period of months.
Age, gender and well-being all influence how quickly your antibody levels can drop. Also whether you experienced 'symptoms' after your vaccine or infection makes a difference. The symptoms are actually a result of your immune system making antibodies.
And the only way to know is to test...
What is Sensitivity?
Clinical sensitivity means how reliably your test will give you a true positive result if you have detectable levels of neutralising antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 in your blood.
Your BioSURE COVID-19 IgG Antibody Self Test has a proven sensitivity of 98.3%. This means that, on average, 983 in
every one thousand people who have neutralising antibodies will be correctly identified and get a positive test result.
Our test has a cut off level of when you have 50% protection against COVID-19.
What is Specificity?
Clinical specificity menas how reliably your test will give you a true negative result if you do not have not detectable levels of neutralising antibodies to SARS-CoV-2) in your blood
Your BioSURE COVID-19 IgG Antibody Self Test has a proven specificity of at least 99.7%. This means that on average only three in every one thousand people who test but do not have neutralising antibodies in their blood will be incorrectly identified and get a false positive test result.
Why should I trust my BioSURE Self Test?
Because our test is CE marked specifically for self-use and is proven to be easy to use, accurate and effective!
The BioSURE COVID-19 IgG Antibody Self Test uses a novel barrel testing device that automatically collects the correct blood volume so that you don't have to worry about any mixing or measuring.
Very importantly, it also has a special in-built feature called a sample control line, which means that the negative (control) line can only appear if you have added enough blood.
Virtually all other lateral flow tests do not have this special in-built feature, so you have no way of knowing if you've done it correctly. If you get one line (the control line) on your BioSURE self-test you will know that you have performed your test correctly and applied enough blood – so you can be confident in your result.
Because we understand who you are. You want accurate, reliable tools, that are easy to use, convenient and give you the freedom to make your own choices.
