A COVID-19 antibody test, also known as a serology test, is a blood test that can detect if a person has antibodies to SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. COVID-19 antibody tests can help identify people who may have been infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus or have recovered from the COVID-19 infection.
COVID-19 (CoronaVirus Disease) is an infectious disease caused by the most recently discovered coronavirus. COVID-19 IgG/IgM Rapid Test ( Serum/Plasma/Whole Blood) is a rapid chromatography immunoassay for the qualitative IgG and IgM antibodies to COVID-19 in human serum, plasma or whole blood.

Component of COVID-19 Total Antibody Rapid Test Kit
- COVID-19 Total Antibody Rapid Test Card, 50pcs,
- Sample buffer, 5ml, 2pcs
- Disposable micropipette tips, 50pcs,
- Kit instruction, 1 pc
How to use COVID-19 Total Antibody Rapid Test Kit
- Take 10-20ul blood sample (serum, full blood or plasma), add into the sample well on the test card
- Then add 2-3 drops of sample buffer into the well.
- Wait for 10-15min, determine the result according to the kit instruction.
Significance of testing IgG/IgM in blood/serum/plasma
- IgM is an antibody produced in the beginning of infection, which indicates an early stage of the disease
- IgG is produced after a period of infection, which indicates the infection is ongoing or was infected.
- Combination of IgG/IgM indicates the infection is ongoing
- Clinical diagnosis shall be determined by RT-PCR/CT scanning.
|IgM POSITIVE: Two lines appear||Colored lines should be in the control line region (C) and IgM test line region. No line appears in IgG test line region|
|IgG and IgM POSITIVE: Three lines appear||Colored lines should be in the control line region(C), IgG line test region and IgM test line region. The color intensities of the lines do not have to match|
|IgG POSITIVE: Two lines appear.||Colored lines should be in the control line region(C) and IgG test line region. No line appears in the IgM test line region.|
NOTE: The intensity of the color in the IgG and/or IgM test line region(s) will vary depending on the concentration of COVID-19 antibodies in the sample. Therefore, any shade of color in the IgG and/or IgM test line region(s) should be considered positive.
