Private Covid-19 Antibody Test in Clinic
The Covid-19 spike antibody test helps identify the presence and level of antibodies to the Covid spike protein.
In all of our clinics, we are able to offer a quantitative spike (S) protein antibody test, also known as the Anti SARS CoV-2 S test.
Our test is run at London’s largest and most reputable UKAS ISO15189 accredited laboratory and is manufactured by one of the global leaders in Covid testing.
When should you get a coronavirus antibody test?
If you have had symptoms of coronavirus, you should only come into clinic after you have completed your self-isolation period and your symptoms have passed. The Anti SARS CoV-2 S test is most accurate when taken 14 days or more after exposure to Covid-19 or vaccination.
The Elecsys® Anti SARS CoV-2 S has internally validated and has been shown to be 99.98% Sensitive and 98.8% Specific in samples taken 14 days or later after positive PCR test. The presence or absence of antibodies does not definitively determine immunity to SARS CoV-2 but helps to numerically measure an individual’s antibody response.
If you have symptoms you should have the PCR swab coronavirus test to identify whether you currently have the active virus.
We are currently only offering in-clinic PCR swab tests at select clinics. We also offer home tests.
Please do not come into any of our clinics if you are currently showing any Covid-19 symptoms.
What is the Spike Antibody Test for?
By offering the covid antibody test, we hope to allow individuals to understand even more about their antibody status and how their antibody levels may change with time.
Many vaccines aim to cause an antibody response against the spike protein. By testing spike protein levels before vaccination and then at intervals afterwards, we may be able to better understand how different individuals respond to vaccines.
What’s the benefit of having the covid antibody test done in clinic?
When you come into clinic you will have your blood sample taken by a trained clinician. The clinician will ensure the is an adequate sample for the laboratory to analyse and provide you with the most accurate results.
Though self-collection of blood sample is a well-established method used across many blood tests, some patients find sample collection unpleasant or struggle to get enough to allow for laboratory analysis.
By providing easily accessible clinics and trained clinician to take the sample, we can offer you peace of mind that your sample will be taken correctly and delivered to the lab on the same day.
How accurate is the Spike Antibody Test?
The Anti SARS CoV-2 S test is most accurate when taken 14 days or more after exposure to Covid-19 or vaccination. The presence or absence of antibodies does not definitively determine immunity to SARS CoV-2 but helps to numerically measure an individual’s antibody response.
It is important to note that not everyone who has Covid-19 or has been vaccinated will develop detectable antibodies.
