We are pleased to offer both rapid and laboratory testing for COVID-19 antibodies. We offer SureScreen instant / rapid antibody testing with results within 10 minutes and Abbott laboratory test for COVID-19 IgG antibodies with full blood draw and results in 24 hours.
COVID-19 antibody tests can show whether you have had a previous infection (IgG antibodies). For a current infection, we continue to recommend a PCR COVID-19 swab which has close to 100% accuracy and can be taken while you are symptomatic at home.
You can also opt for a laboratory Abbott test for IgG antibodies which is 99% accurate.

If you are currently symptomatic, we recommend opting for our coronavirus testing package which includes telephone consultation and swab testing at home. If you need to exclude an active infection for travel purpose or to visit someone and are asymptomatic, you can speed up the process by having a PCR swab test at the clinic. Just book online.
The instant tests are not suitable or approved for home use and should be conducted at the clinic as accuracy reduces when done at home due to the relative complexity of the testing process. The tests are registered with the MHRA and FDA and are CE registered.
SureScreen tests kits are endorsed by Guy’s and St Thomas’ and King’s College London. These tests are manufactured in Derby. We are confident that these tests are a reliable test for a past infection.
Please call the clinics or book online to arrange your check-up and test. We have three options available:
- Instant test: £85
- Laboratory test for IgG antibodies (Abbott): £129
- Corporate clients should contact Anisa Goshi at email@example.com
Blood antibody testing tests for IgG and IgM antibodies for the COVID-19 virus. In simple terms, it tells you whether you have previously had the virus or had it recently / currently have it.
It is best practice to confirm a current infection with a PCR swab.
The SureScreen antibody test has a 99.6% accuracy for IgG antibodies and 100% sensitivity after 20 days’ exposure.
We recommend testing 28 days after you started showing symptoms. If you are asymptomatic, you can have the test at any time.
If you are currently symptomatic, we recommend having a PCR swab test which we can send to your home.
Instant coronavirus antibody tests are available now. We are currently using SureScreen COVID-19 antibody test kits for IgG and IgM antibodies and Abbott testing also.
The test for the previous infection is reliably accurate (99.6%). The test for the current infection is a little less accurate (approximately 97 – 98%) which is why we recommend confirmation with a PCR swab.
If you are symptomatic and currently ill, we recommend the PCR swab test which you can do at home with our kit.
