COVID-19 IgG Antibody Test – Clinic Visit

A COVID-19 antibody test performed in a laboratory

Please note: we are unable to offer this test in a clinic if you currently have symptoms. We recommend a PCR home test if you are currently displaying symptoms.

Your Sexual Health can now deliver a COVID-19 Antibody Test that can tell you if you have previously been infected with the COVID-19 virus. This is a laboratory blood test that identifies IgG antibodies created by your body when fighting the virus. It has a high degree of accuracy and is approved for use in the UK. It is different from the Instant Antibody Tests which are still not deemed to be accurate.

Who is this test for?

This test is for anyone who wants to find out if they have ever been infected with the COVID-19 Coronavirus. It is not for anyone who currently has symptoms as it is only accurate around 14 days after symptoms have passed and your body has created enough antibodies to be detected on the test.

How does this test work?

This test uses a blood sample taken from one of our participating clinics to identify the IgG antibodies created by your body following infection with COVID-19. It is an Enzyme Linked Immunosorbent Assay test, which means it is specific to the antibodies created by the COVID-19 strain of the virus. It can therefore definitively say that you have been infected with the deadly COVID-19 as opposed to other kinds of coronavirus.

This test only identifies the IgG antibodies, which are the long term antibodies that will remain in your body for longer. It does not identify the IgM antibodies. It will only be accurate for from around 14 days once your symptoms have passed.

Is this test accurate and safe?

This IgG ELISA kit was tested at the Jiaxing City Centre for Disease Control and Prevention and Zhejiang University Hospital. The diagnostic sensitivity and specificity was 100%.

There has been a lot of talk in the news and in World Health Organization briefings about antibody tests for COVID-19. A lot of this talk relates to instant tests which have not been proven to meet the required level of accuracy to be deemed safe.

Our tests are NOT INSTANT TESTS, they require a blood sample to be tested in a UKAS Accredited laboratory and are completely safe and accurate. We are regularly in consultation with Public Health England and conduct our own due diligence for all of our testing products.

If I have IgG am I immune?

Someone with a normal immune system that can fight the virus and get better should have immunity for quite some time. How long and whether it is lifelong is currently difficult to say. This will become more clear as global research surrounding the virus develops.

When should I take this test?

This test offers accurate results against COVID-19 14 days after symptoms have passed. 

Why Choose Us?

As well as offering the most extensive range of in clinic and home STD tests, we can also provide accurate COVID-19 antibody testing and PCR testing. All of our tests are carried out using a UKAS accredited laboratory or PHE medically approved equipment.
