New Corona Virus COVID 19  Rapid HomeTesting KIT

The New Coronavirus test kit is an IgM-IgG Combined Antibody Rapid Test and is one of the world’s first rapid screening tests for the identification of coronavirus infection. This precise screening test is similar to the type that is used widely all over the world for Disease Control and Prevention to identify COVID-19 infections and is now available in the UK. The single-use qualitative (Novel – Colloidal Gold method) test detects both early and late marker IgG/IgM antibodies in human finger-prick blood samples.

 

Antibodies (also called immunoglobulins) are large Y-shaped proteins that can stick to the surface of bacteria and viruses. They are found in the blood or other body fluids of vertebrates. ... Each antibody is different. They are all designed to attack only one kind of antigen (in practice, this means virus or bacteria).

What is an antibody test?

An antibody test can detect if a person has or has had the coronavirus before and has since recovered. The test, carried out by a device that pricks your finger for blood, works this out by testing your blood for coronavirus antibodies to see if they have already beaten the virus and gained some immunity to it. It can do this in about 15 minutes.

IgG antibody appears later than the IgM antibody, and it reaches a peak in about four weeks. It can be in the body for a long time and it is a sign of the previous infection.

The coronavirus test currently used all over the world could possibly indicate the viral infection environment.

What is an antigen test?

An antigen test detects the presence (or absence) of an antigen, not antibodies. An antigen is a structure within a virus that triggers the immune system's response to fight off the infection. It can be detected in blood before antibodies are made.

An antigen test is effective because it can take a few days for the immune system to build enough antibodies to be detected in a test; however, antigens can be detected almost immediately after infection. So, in theory, the test can tell much sooner whether someone has the virus.

How the test is done at home?

You will receive a full sealed kit which will include everything you will need to do a test in about 15 minutes.

  1. Make sure the box and the enclosed kit is intact. Read all the information in the leaflet included.

  2. After setting out everything on a clean surface, leave the kit at room temperature for about 30 minutes, clean left ring finger pulp, after a gentle massage with alcohol swab like people do in a blood sugar level testing.

  3. Make a prick at the reddest part of the finger with a lancet included.

  4. Let the first drop come out and discard it and then without touching anything else suck in next drop/drops of blood in a blood-sucking tube (disposable micropipette), included in the kit. Add two drops of buffer liquid from a small bottle included in the 2nd hole.

  5. Fill the designated sample part/hole on the testing kit/cassette, with marked IgG/IgM and letter C on the other the end, from that blood-sucking tube. Wait for 15 minutes.
