The test answer can be read after only 15 minutes. You will receive a note with you describing how to interpret the test result and log in to our website with BankID and read the answer there. If you do not have a Swedish social security number, we can help you print the answer on the spot.
What does the Antibody Test show?
The test measures IgG and IgM antibodies. The safest answer is if you get a positive or negative answer to both IgG and IgM. A positive test with IgG antibodies alone indicates that you have undergone Covid-19 infection (IgG antibodies are specific and well targeted to a specific disease). A positive response with IgM alone is a more uncertain response (IgM is not as specific to a specific disease).
NOTE! A negative antibody response does not rule out that you may have had a corona infection. There are other immune responses that are more complicated to measure, these are not measured with rapid tests.
Important to know for you as a customer
Antibodies are normally formed after a disease has passed. In order for the antibody levels to reach a measurable level, you need to wait at least 14 days from being completely healthy before taking your test. You should therefore not have any symptoms of illness when you take your antibody test. The test is performed by a registered nurse through a fingerprick, you will receive the test answer within 15 minutes. The test can be performed from the age of 12. We follow the Public Health Agency’s guidelines regarding rapid tests and how they should be performed.
The Swedish Public Health Agency has made a list of various rapid tests that can be recommended, our test is on this list.
