PCR SWAB VS IgG ANTIBODY TEST

A PCR test looks for the presence of the RNA of the virus itself. This means that it will pick up the presence of the actual virus in the nose and throat. It is very accurate and will be able to confirm whether anyone with symptoms is actively infected with the virus. It will also pick up whether the virus is present for people who have been exposed but are not showing any symptoms as yet.

The IgG antibody test confirms whether an individual has ever been exposed to the virus and generated an immune response. The test we offer has been approved by the MHRA.

Dottore London offers both tests through The Doctors Laboratory. The PCR swab kit will be delivered to your home via post. Upon arrival at the lab, you can expect results in 48 hours. While for the IgG test patients need to come to our clinic where a nurse will draw a blood sample. If you wish, you can also have an online consultation with one of our doctors in order to discuss your results.
