The drop™ self-collection kit contains all necessary supplies for the self-collection of one capillary blood specimen and transport system to CoreMedica Laboratories for COVID-19 Antibody serology analysis.
The drop™ COVID-19 antibody test, using a capillary blood sample, is useful for the detection of individuals who may have developed immunity to the SARS-CoV-2 virus. This antibody test is also especially helpful for tracking the spread of the virus as it also identifies asymptomatic carriers. Test results, in conjunction with other laboratory results and clinical information, may also be used to help the presumptive diagnosis of COVID-19.
The screening test is primarily used to detect exposure to the virus in the recent past by measuring the immune response lined to the infection (Antibody IgG/IgM). An immune response to the virus is detected at approximately 2 weeks after infection in asymptomatic individuals and approximately 8-10 days after the onset of symptoms in individuals who have experienced fever and coughing.
