The COVID-19 test (SARS-CoV-2) for professional use is a solid phase immunochromatographic assay for the rapid, qualitative and differential detection of IgG and IgM antibodies related to the new Coronavirus 2019 in human whole blood (venous and capillary), in serum or plasma. The package contains 20 tests for Covid-19 (€ 3.99 per test). Special price given the health emergency currently underway in Italy (original price of € 199.90).

For professional use. The package does not contain the lancets for the necessary capillary blood sampling (to be purchased separately).

FAQ 

What is the COVID-19 serological test?

It is a test with capillary blood technology (taken via lancing device by a nurse) to determine the presence of IgM and IgG class antibodies developed in reaction to SARS-COV-2 which is responsible for the Covid-19 infection

What are qualitative serological tests for?

Qualitative serological tests are used to detect the antibodies that any individual produces in response to an infection (or vaccination). In this case it is a question of searching for antibodies that act against the main proteins of the Sars-Cov-2 virus which is responsible for the Covid-19 infection.

What are IgM and IgG?

They are antibodies. When a virus is contracted, after a "window period", the body begins to develop IgM antibodies (active phase) and to follow IgG antibodies. With the passage of time the IgG rise while the IgM descends, with times and kinetics currently under study.

What is the use of the COVID-19 serological test?

The utility is the rapid screening and monitoring of antibody response on a large scale. In the fight against COVID-19 in order not to congest laboratories and to allow swabs to be carried out by those who fall into certain categories of urgency, the Ministry of Health believes that serological tests are very important for research and epidemiological evaluation of viral circulation.

What is the difference with other kits sold online?

The test we use has obtained CE certification and is produced by an ISO 9001/2015 and ISO 13485/2016 certified company. 

How long does it take to know the result?

The test result must be reported by a physician or licensed professional healthcare personnel. 

If I am negative, does it mean that I do not have COVID 19?

In the event of a COVID 19 infection, the body needs a few days to produce its antibody response (window phase). Therefore, if the test were to be performed shortly after infection, it may not detect antibodies precisely because they have yet to be produced by the body. In this case we speak of a false negative. If you are not sure whether to perform the test after the "window phase", the most prudent solution is to schedule a close re-test.

If I am positive, does it mean that I have COVID 19?

For now the only validated test for diagnosis is the throat swab RT-PCR. Therefore, even if the sensitivity of 90% and the specificity of 96% of this test are very high, the possibility of false positives remains and therefore any possible positive result must be subsequently confirmed by the throat swab.
