COVID-19 IgG/IgM Rapid Blood Test
NOVAtest ® COVID-19 IgG/IgM Rapid Test Cassette is used to visually detect both IgG and IgM antibodies specific to the novel coronavirus in human serum, plasma or whole blood.
COVID-19 IgG/IgM Antibody Rapid Test Kit
COVID-19 IgG/IgM Rapid Test is a lateral flow immunoassay for the simultaneous detection and differentiation of IgG and IgM antibodies specific to the SARS-CoV-2 virus in human serum, plasma or whole blood. It is intended to be used as a help in the diagnosis of this new coronavirus infection; also it is helpful to check the effective of the SARS-COV-2 vaccine.
It has been proved that combined with nucleic acid detection method or COVID-19 Antigen rapid test method, the COVID-19 IgG/IgM Antibody detection method can greatly facilitate the diagnosis of the SARS-CoV-2 infection.
Advantages of COVID-19 IgG/IgM test
COVID-19 IgG/IgM antibody test kit have its own advantages as follow:
- High Efficiency: with a lancet to get a drop of fingertip blood (about 10µl), and within as short as 10 minutes, the result can be read visually. The short waiting time makes COVID-19 rapid test kit an effective method for large-scale preliminary screening.
- Convenience: lancets, alcohol swab, blood collecting tube are included in the test kit. The test can be performed on the point of care; and if only the procedures can be followed exactly, professional background is not a must.
- Lower cost: compared with CT scan and nucleic acid detection methods, the cost of the COVID-19 blood rapid test kit are significantly lower.
- Lowest risk of infection: unlike the nucleic method, the sample collecting performers need not be exposed to the respiratory waste when collecting the blood specimen, which reduces the risk infection during specimens collection.
Symptoms of COVID-19 Infection
The novel coronaviruses belong to the β genus of Nidovirales. COVID-19 is an acute respiratory infectious disease.
People are generally susceptible. Currently, the patients infected by novel coronavirus are the main source of infection; asymptomatic infected people can also be an infectious source.
Based on the current epidemiological investigation, the incubation period is 1 to 14 days, mostly 3 to 7 days. The main manifestations include fever, fatigue and dry cough. Nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat, myalgia and diarrhea are found in a few cases.
