MMH has temporarily paused its home testing service due to the ongoing distribution challenges being experienced by Roche in the UK, the provider of our medical laboratory equipment. Roche expect these issues, which are related to the move to a new UK distribution centre, to last between 2-3 weeks. Please be assured that as soon as the distribution challenge is resolved, MMH sales will restart. If you are an existing customer, with an outstanding test, we will ensure this is processed and you receive your result and report in the normal way. We are sorry for the inconvenience this may be causing our customers.
Find out if you have had the
COVID-19 virus in the past.
IMPORTANT: This test will not detect antibodies to the COVID-19 vaccine; for this purpose use our
COVID-19 Vaccine Immunity Test.
This test looks for COVID-19 antibodies in a blood sample. Antibodies are made by the body in response to the virus. A positive antibody result indicates that you have had the COVID-19 virus in the past. A negative test indicates that you have not had the COVID-19 virus. We do not provide a numerical result for this test.
IMPORTANT: This test will not detect antibodies to the COVID-19 vaccine; for this purpose use our COVID-19 Vaccine Immunity Test.
This test is available for people aged over 18 only.
No, the majority of international travel restrictions require you to take a COVID-19 PCR test prior to travel. This is to indicate that you do not have a current COVID-19 infection. A COVID-19 antibody test cannot be used for this purpose.
We do not issue certificates of results for either the COVID-19 Antibody Test or the COVID-19 Vaccine Immunity Test. Results will be available to view via our website.
Some countries may waive quarantine restrictions for passengers with a positive COVID-19 antibody test. These tests must usually be conducted in a laboratory accredited by the country’s government. For this reason, our COVID-19 Antibody Test and Vaccine Immunity Test cannot be used for this purpose.
A positive antibody test means that you have developed antibodies to COVID-19. This indicates that you have had COVID-19 in the past.
A negative result means that antibodies were not detected. This can indicate that you have not had a COVID-19 infection in the past or that antibodies have decreased to a level that can no longer be detected.
A positive test result indicates that you have had an immune response to the virus. Unfortunately, a positive result does not mean that you are immune to the virus. It cannot tell you whether or not you can become ill with COVID-19 again. Nor can it tell you whether or not you can spread the virus to others. You should continue to follow all government guidance and restrictions.
No, this test does not tell you if you have a current COVID-19 infection. This test can only tell you if you have had COVID-19 in the past.
If you have symptoms of COVID-19 that started less than eight days ago, then a PCR test can tell you if you have COVID-19.
We use the Roche Anti-SARS-CoV-2 test
Studies by the manufacturer have found that this test has a 99.5% sensitivity and a 99.8% specificity.
This means that:
The test has been separately validated by Public Health England. We have performed our own verification to ensure that the test is fit-for-purpose and works with our home testing kits.
The test measures a sample of your blood to look for antibodies to SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. The body responds to the virus by making antibodies. These antibodies are used by your immune system to help fight infection. Peak antibody levels are typically seen 4-6 weeks after infection. The presence of antibodies after this time are a good indicator that you have had COVID-19.
No, the COVID-19 antibody test measures SARS-CoV-2 N antibodies (nucleocapsid antibodies, including IgG antibodies). These antibodies will not be made in response to any vaccines currently in use. A positive result indicates exposure to the virus that causes COVID-19.
To check for both previous COVID-19 infection and vaccine response, you might want to try our combined COVID-19 antibody and immune response test.
All tests are confidential, and designed simply to help you self diagnose.
All tests are designed to be able to be carried out in the comfort of your own home, simply follow the package instructions.
For the best results all tests should be returned in the pre-paid package provided as soon as they are carried out.
We will contact you by your chosen method to let you know your results are ready (typically 24-48 hours following receipt of the sample). You will then be able to log into your personal dashboard and view your results.
