Who needs to administer the tests?

What is the difference between a PCR swab test and an antibody test?


A PCR swab test is used to detect whether a person currently has the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus as an active infection. An antibody test detects whether a person has developed antibodies to the virus from either past exposure or infection.




If someone receives positive antibody test, does this mean they are now immune?


A positive antibody test is an indicator that a person has antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 (coronavirus) and perhaps immunity. However, globally this novel virus is still being studied to understand the bodies ability to maintain antibodies in the longer run and hence whether the presence of antibody provides immunity. Work is still being carried out on this. A positive test which shows the presence of antibodies does not mean that individual has immunity.




Who is allowed to buy Rapid Test kits?


Currently all testing kits are only available for professional use, as a medical professional must adminster them. This means that businesses and corporations are allowed to purchase the tests, as long as it is administered by a medical professional or qualified clincian.




How do we know the test is working properly?


The tests use a control, which is the "C" line. First check the "C" line on the test and if this does not develop, the test result is invalid and should be dispensed. Another test should then be performed again.




What does the test check for to determine the presence of antibodies?


The test looks for the presence of either one of two antibody biomarkers in the blood or plasma: IgG and IgM.




What are the storage requirements for the tests?


The tests need to be kept at room temperature.
