COVID-19 Information

COVID-19 is a new illness that can affect your lungs and airways caused by coronavirus.

Common symptoms include:

  • fever

  • tiredness

  • dry cough.

Other symptoms include:

  • shortness of breath

  • aches and pains

  • sore throat

  • and very few people will report diarrhoea, nausea or a runny nose.

People with mild symptoms who are otherwise healthy should self-isolate and contact their medical provider or a COVID-19 information line for advice on testing and referral.

People with fever, cough or difficulty breathing should seek medical attention.

COVID-19 Rapid Antibody Test

The COVID-19 Rapid Test Kit is a finger prick test utilising a qualitative lateral flow immuno-chromatographic assay for the detection of IgM and IgG antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 in human whole blood, serum or plasma samples.It is intended for use as a tool to assist in the diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2 infections.

Principle

The COVID-19 IgG/IgM Test is a lateral flow chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of anti-SARS-CoV-2 IgG and IgM in human whole blood, serum or plasma specimens. Anti-human IgM are pre-coated onto the test line region ‘IgM’ and anti-human IgG are pre-coated onto the test line region ‘IgG’ of the membrane. During testing, the specimen reacts with SARS-CoV-2 antigens which are conjugated to coloured particles. The mixture then migrates along the membrane chromatographically by capillary action and reacts with the anti-human IgM and anti-human IgG in the test line region ‘IgM’ and ‘IgG’ of the membrane. The presence of a coloured line in the test line region ‘IgM’ and/or ‘IgG’ indicates a positive result. The absence of a coloured line in the test line region ‘IgM’ and/or ‘IgG’indicates a negative result. The formation of a coloured line in the control line region ‘C’ serves as a procedural control, indicating that the proper volume of specimen has been added and membrane wicking has occurred.

DISCLAIMER:

The test kit is ONLY available for professional use.

While we believe this kit is to be an effective indicator of infection we cannot guarantee 100% accuracy so the patient should still be advised to follow government guidelines for those exhibiting symptoms and those who aren’t regarding hygiene, self-isolation and other measures even if the test is negative.
