These testing kits are not for home use, but are for organisations, healthcare establishments and professional use only.

The IgG Antibody Test is only validated by Public Health England for venous puncture samples, and not capillary-based samples. Our government approved laboratory has self-validated capillary samples for home sample collection kits. Venous sampling involves using a catheter to take a blood sample directly from the vein. The sample is most commonly taken from the inner crook of the elbow, between the upper and lower arm. Capillary sampling involves collecting a blood sample from a puncture, typically in the tip of the finger, on the heel or the earlobe. The blood sample will be collected from smaller blood vessels near the skin’s surface.
