Do you want to know if you have immunity to Covid-19?
Our advanced laboratory Covid‑19 antibody test will analyse a sample of your blood to detect the presence of Covid-19 specific antibodies, including Immunoglobulin G (IgG), the most common type of antibody. Your results will tell you if you have been exposed to Covid-19 in the past by determining the amount of Covid-19-specific antibodies in your bloodstream.
Your report will provide a quantitative result that relates to the level of Covid-19 antibodies within your sample and whether the level is low, medium, high or not detected.
Antibodies not detected
Medium antibody levels
High antibody levels
Antibodies from Infection or Vaccine
Tracking your IgG levels will give you an indication of your level of immunity to a SARS CoV-2 infection. This new and innovative laboratory antibody test is designed to give you peace of mind about the level of protection you have from either vaccination or natural exposure to the virus. It will potentially highlight those people who have a poor immune response and therefore need to take extra care.
If you order an antibody immunity test from AlphaBiolabs, you will be sent an easy-to-use sample collection kit to collect your own blood spot sample in the comfort and privacy of your own home.
The kit comes with free delivery plus clear and simple instructions on how to collect your sample and send it back to our UK-accredited laboratory, using the pre-paid tracked envelope included.

Understanding your results
Your laboratory report will show the level of Covid-19-specific antibodies in your blood sample. The level could range from antibodies not being detected at all, to an optical density range of 0.25 (a very low level) at the lower end of the antibody concentration scale, to a density of greater than 1.5 (a very high level) at the higher end of the antibody concentration scale.
Each analytical value will be accompanied by a basic interpretation as to whether levels are considered low, medium or high. It is not yet known exactly how long people will maintain their levels of antibodies, but this will depend on individual differences and may be affected by many factors such as age, whether you are male or female, diet, and general health and fitness. Further research and testing will help scientists discover more about how long immunity to Covid-19 is likely to last.
|High||Typically, individuals with high levels of antibodies:
|Medium||Typically, individuals with medium levels of antibodies:
|Low||Typically, individuals with low levels of antibodies:
|Typically, individuals with no antibodies:
If you wish to track your levels of Covid-19-specific antibodies, it is advisable to test your blood every 1-2 months to monitor any decline in antibody levels.
Please ensure you wait at least 14 days after receiving a dose of a Covid-19 vaccination or after testing positive from a confirmed Covid-19 infection before taking the test.
All testing is carried out in our award-winning UK laboratory
Frequently Asked Questions
Does the detection of antibodies mean that I am immune to Covid-19?
What will the results tell me?
Example antibody report:
Will this test tell me if my vaccine has worked?
The test should be taken at least 14 days after vaccination.
How long should I wait to do this test after having a Covid-19 vaccination or after testing positive for Covid-19?
We would advise waiting at least 14 days after receiving a dose of a Covid-19 vaccination or after testing positive from a confirmed Covid-19 infection before taking the test.
Can these tests be used as evidence of having Covid-19-specific antibodies for international travel?
What is in the antibody test kit?
How do I send my sample back to the lab?
How do I get my results?
You results will be sent by email using the email address provided when registering your sample online.
Will the results be affected by the flu vaccine?
The assay is specific for SARS-CoV-2 antibodies so the flu vaccine won’t affect the result.
