COVID-19 Antibody Testing At The Courtyard Clinic

Posted in: Uncategorised, by thecourtyardclinic, on 10th November 2020 | 0 comments
Antibody Testing Courtyard Clinic

Wondering if you’ve already had the Coronavirus? Here at the Courtyard Clinic we’ve started providing COVID-19 antibody testing. This involves a capillary blood test quickly and easily conducted by one of our friendly members of the team at the practice. Not sure what a capillary blood test is? In this circumstance, it’s just a quick finger prick. The COVID-19 antibody test can be performed on a small volume (20ul) of capillary blood which is equivalent to about one or two drops of blood. This can help make the whole experience a more pleasant one, particularly for those who are fearful of standard blood tests. 

 

What is a COVID-19 antibody test?

Rather than specifically test if you are currently infected by the Coronavirus, an antibody test examines whether you’ve previously been infected. How? When your body becomes infected with a bacteria, virus or other foreign substance, it makes antibodies in response. Hence, if you have coronavirus antibodies in your blood, it’s likely you’ve had the virus before. This information can then be used to understand the spread of the virus within a given geography, workplace, or organisation, helping to increase the safety of a workforce.

 

How long does it take to get results?

Our tests are very quick and results are given within 10-15 minutes of the test being taken. Result times for other antibody tests that are currently available range from 3 to 7 days, making this style of test the best choice for those looking for rapid results. 

 

How accurate is our COVID-19 antibody test?

The capillary test we use here at The Courtyard Clinic has a sensitivity of 99.03% and specificity of 98.65% meaning it has excellent performance.

 

How much does an antibody test cost?

Our antibody tests are priced at just £99 each. 

 

How do I get an antibody test?

Simply give us a call on 01932 582 949 and we can get you booked in for a test. With results given within 15 minutes, it’s possible to find out if you’ve had the coronavirus on your lunchbreak or at short notice should you need the results for any reason.
