Coronavirus Antibody Tests In-Clinic

Request an appointment for coronavirus antibody tests in-clinic to have a blood sample analysed for the presence of coronavirus antibodies. Testing of a blood sample for antibodies will identify an earlier or previous infection of the COVID-19 virus. An expert nurse will take a blood sample in-clinic for analysis by our laboratory. It is important to remember this type of testing will identify previous infection and will not detect the active infection found in the first 2-3 weeks.

Self-Test Kit for Coronavirus (Active infection)

We are now offering coronavirus self-test kits for the detection of active coronavirus infection.

Detection of the active virus is undertaken by a swab test and analysed in a licensed laboratory using a technique called a PCR test. This is a swab test of the nose and throat which can be done at home with the swab sample. This sample can then be posted directly to the laboratory for analysis and results. It is important to remember this type of test will identify an active virus infection that usually is detectable in the first 2-3 weeks only.

Coronavirus Antibody Self-Test Kits

Our coronavirus self-test kits will be posted to you. The self-test kit will include easy-to-follow instructions on how to take your sample and how to receive your results via a secure online connection.

You will need to take a blood sample from a small finger-prick using the micro lancet provided with the coronavirus self-test kits. Once you’ve taken your blood sample, you post it directly to our laboratory for analysis in secure bio-protective packaging. It is important to remember this type of testing will identify previous infection and will not detect the active infection found in the first 2-3 weeks.
