Other symptoms include:
shortness of breath
aches and pains

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.

Cost effective method for assisting in diagnosing COVID-19 disease.
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.
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.
