COVID-19 Antibody Testing

During this period of pandemic and unknown in relation to COVID-19, Summerfield Healthcare is committed to offering only what we believe to be the best products currently on the market.

Why Test?

  • Gain insight to whether you have previously been infected with COVID-19
  • As more is understood about immunity to COVID-19, antibody testing may help to assess who has built up immunity to the virus
  • All samples analysed at a UKAS accredited laboratory, NOT rapid tests
  • Antibody testing should be done no sooner than 21 days after your first symptom

See below, for available COVID-19 antibody testing methods.

Roche Antibody Test

Roche’s antibody test has been FDA approved and detects IgG antibodies.

The test may be used to reliably detect whether someone has been infected by COVID-19 and what the presence of long- term antibodies is.

A ‘detected’ result means you have previously been infected with COVID-19 and have developed antibodies.

A ‘not detected’ result means you have not developed antibodies and therefore it is unlikely you have had the virus.

An ‘equivocal’ result suggests you have tested too early since being infected and should retest in 7 days.

  • Sensitivity – 100%
  • Specificity – >99.8% (greater than 99.8%)

Siemens Total Antibody Test

We consider the Siemens’ SARS-COV-2 Total Antibody is the best test on the market to date, whilst not FDA approved Siemens “expect to exceed the stringent FDA quality guidelines”.

The total antibody test assesses the presence of IgG, IgM & IgA antibodies relating to COVID-19.

According to public health institutes such as the CDC, total antibody tests offer better sensitivity than IgG-only antibody tests in identifying people who have been recently infected with COVID-19.

IgG alone may be better for assessing long term durable immunity. However, current scientific evidence is not conclusive this will be the case in COVID-19. Given this uncertainty, a COVID-19 Total Antibody test will deliver the best and most accurate results.

  • Sensitivity – 100%
  • Specificity – >99.8%

What does the government say?

“An independent appraisal of assay performance to determine performance metrics with precision using a large, well-characterised sample set.”
