The following test profiles are being made available by the Tropical Medical Bureau in conjunction with our external specialised laboratory provider. This is on the understanding and acceptance that the tests are carried out at your informed personal request and that you have undertaken to discuss the results with an appropriate qualified and registered medical professional. It is also essential that in using this service that you recognise and accept that to confirm any result it may be necessary to have tests repeated or further tests carried out and also that no medical related action should take place based on the reported results alone.

About Antibody Tests

A blood sample can be taken to check to see if there are specific antibodies to Covid-19 present. These are specialised proteins and indicate if you had a previous infection with the virus. These antibodies help to fight off the disease and are only produced by the body after exposure and infection has occurred. They can usually take 8-10 days to appear but, occasionally, this can take longer. To ensure the individuals body has had sufficient time to create the antibodies, and to avoid a false negative result, it is recommended that this test should be done 14 or more days after the individual started to become sick. Some people also remain without symptoms even though they have been infected and during this ‘asymptomatic’ phase they may pass the illness on to others. It is also important to understand that not every individual creates circulating antibodies even after confirmed infection.

Warning:

  1. The presence of antibodies does not necessarily mean that the individual is protected against future attacks of Covid-19.
  2. Please note, antibody tests should not be used to diagnose someone as being currently sick with COVID-19. To check for a current infection, you need a viral test which checks respiratory samples, such as a swab from inside your nose.

Make an appointment to have your blood sample taken.

Before you attend our staff will send you further information which you should complete and return to us so we have it available for your appointment. When you attend you will be seen by one of our nurses who will take the blood sample and organise to have it analysed. The result will be available within 48 hours and posted on your secure myTMB facility. Alternatively you can attend the clinic in person and collect your result if that suits better.

As part of this new service, TMB recognises that some patients may need extra support to understand their results as they become available. Accordingly, TMB are providing a ‘tele consultation’ facility to allow individuals who have taken an antibody test discuss their personal results with one of our healthcare professionals. Details on accessing this service will be provided along with test results.
