COVID-19 Antibody Tests

At selected centres across our UK-wide network, we are pleased to be able to offer one of the two Public Health England approved antibody tests for people who wish to know if they have already had Coronavirus (COVID-19).

The Government approved Abbott Laboratory antibody test looks for the presence of IgG antibodies and is more than 99% accurate. Unlike ‘home testing kits’ it requires a blood sample which will be taken by our highly experienced healthcare teams at our centres in Weybridge and Central London.

You can be confident that the coronavirus antibody tests we offer:

  • A doctor-led testing service
  • Have a CE Mark, which confirms they meet the requirements of medical device regulations
  • Are MHRA approved
  • Have been approved by the Government for use across the UK, including in the NHS

Patients will receive a certified laboratory report by email, usually within 24-48 hours of the test.

Please note this test does not test for current COVID-19 infections. If you are showing any COVID-19 (coronavirus) symptoms, however mild, you should follow the latest government advice and self-isolate. Please do not attend your appointment if you are showing any symptoms – instead, please contact our teams and they can discuss rearranging your appointment with you.

When will I receive my results?

You will receive a certified laboratory report by email within 24-48 hours of having the COVID-19 Antibody Test.

If the results are positive, am I now immune to catching COVID-19 again?

The test identifies the presence of IgG antibodies in your body and confirms whether your body has developed an immune response to the COVID-19 virus.

Past experience shows that having a virus infection does give some protection against future infection. However, it is not yet known, for certain, if having a coronavirus infection gives future immunity against the virus. If it does provide immunity, then we do not know how long that will last.

What type of Coronavirus tests are available?

There are two main types of coronavirus test:

  1. The PCR test involves taking nose and throat swabs and is used in individuals who are displaying symptoms of coronavirus. It determines whether they currently have the Coronavirus infection. Anyone displaying symptoms In England, Scotland, Wales of Northern Ireland can request a PCR test via the NHS. They are carried out at NHS testing centres and community “hot clinics”. Anyone who has symptoms suspicious of coronavirus should call 111 or their own NHS GP.
  2. The second type of test is the IgG antibody test which tells you if you have had coronavirus infection sometime in the past. This is the test available at Medical Imaging Partnership centres.
