Immunity Testing

Do you have COVID Immunity?

Firstly, to answer this question, it is important to understand what is meant by immunity to the COVID-19 virus. Since the creation of the vaccine, we are now looking at two specific types of COVID immunity;

  • That of a natural immune system response from being infected with the virus
  • That of a synthetic immune response that is provided from taking the recently developed COVID vaccines

There are multiple factors that can impact a person’s immune response to the COVID virus. One of the biggest, which is now well known, is that of a person’s age. Recent research has also determined that there may be a link between a diseases’ severity and an individual’s long-term immunity.

What this means is that those who are experiencing a severe reaction to the virus are more likely to develop a stronger long-term immune response. The exact duration of  immunity also varies greatly from person to person. As of early December (2021), it is believed that natural immunity to the virus for those who have recovered from infection can last anything from 3 months all the way up to 5 years!

Regardless of the circumstances of a person’s immune response, you may simply want to know if you have natural antibodies to help fight off any potential re-infection.

Here at Fast Test Centre, we can offer you the opportunity and appropriate test to find out!

What is the Antigen swab test for?2022-08-08T12:47:56+00:00

The antigen swab test gives you a very reliable indicator of whether you have or have not currently got the virus. A positive result has a very high chance of confirming if you are carrying covid-19 virus in sufficient quantities (viral load) to make you infectious. There is of course a margin for error in any test, but the margin is small.

What is the Antibody blood test for?2022-08-08T12:47:49+00:00

The antibody blood test gives you a very reliable indicator of whether you have been exposed to the virus by detecting certain antibodies in your blood. Please note; it is not yet fully known if an individual with a positive result showing presence of IgG levels following being infected with COVID-19 will be protected, either fully or partially, from future infection, or for how long the protective immunity may last. Please see our available tests for more information.

What Testing Is Available?

We offer Covid-19 tests suitable for travel, both for Departures from the UK and Arrivals as well.

We will supply a “Fit to Fly” certificate with a negative result if you choose a test called “Fit to Fly”. This is the certificate you need to check in for your travel, whether you are flying or travelling by ship, boat, train or car to destinations outside of the UK.

An PCR test is the gold standard in COVID-19 testing. It offers the most accurate results as it can detect even the smallest amount of virus. A negative PCR test result provides the most reliable indication you can safely continue to work and travel.

Covid antigen swab test

Antigen (Lateral Flow) Test

The Antigen test consists solely of a nasal swab. Our tests are the only 15 minute Antigen tests currently available in the UK and has recently been purchased in huge numbers by HM Government for use on the frontline against in the battle against COVID-19. Our test is one of only three tests approved by the Government and has been awarded the highest accuracy rating.

Covid PCR test

PCR Test

PCR tests look for the genetic code (RNA) of the virus. The test involves taking a swab of the throat and nose. The test will confirm if an individual who is showing symptoms of the virus currently has it. It will not confirm whether they have had it and have now recovered. PCR tests take up to 48 hours as the collected samples need to be analysed by a UK based lab.

Covid antibody blood tests

Antibody Blood Test

Have you had it? The Antibody Blood test is designed for those that feel that they have previously been infected with the COVID virus. Most patients that have had the disease have been found to produce the IgG antibody. This test effectively detects the presence of these antibodies in the blood.
