The role of the Covid-19 antibody test in our ‘new normal’
As the Government encourages businesses to re-open, we understand the concerns and anxieties that come with welcoming your employees back to the workplace. Providing a clean and safe working environment and making sure your staff are protected from catching COVID-19 is a big undertaking, alongside the normal operational demands of your business.

The AlphaBiolabs COVID-19 Antibody Test (also known as a serology test) will take some of the stress out of that for you. It is designed to indicate an ongoing current (IgM) or a previous infection (IgG) in an individual and can therefore indicate whether they are still susceptible to the virus.

It does this by looking for specific antibodies in the blood, which are produced by the immune system in response to foreign articles (known as antigens) entering the body. The immune system recognises an antigen as a threat and produces the right antibodies to fight the disease represented by that antigen.

Typically, once a person has had a virus, they do not normally catch it again because the body will store memory cells specific to that antigen. When that person comes into contact with the antigen again, the memory cells work quickly to produce the correct antibody to fight it*.

By providing your employees with the opportunity to be tested on-site, with results in just 15 minutes, you can confidently welcome them back to the workplace, reassuring them you are doing everything you can to protect them whilst they are in your employ.
