What is COVID-19 test kit?
COVID-19 test kits allow testing a patient for the novel coronavirus named COVID-19 using blood, serum, or plasma.
The test identifies specific antibodies in the blood that allow making a preliminary diagnosis of COVID-19. For the precise diagnosis, laboratory tests should be made.
What is COVID-19?
COVID-19 is a virus from the class of coronaviruses that are RNA viruses with a protective protein shell spread among humans, animals, and birds. The viruses from the class cause respiratory and other diseases. COVID-19 provokes respiratory tract infections in humans that can cause pneumonia and lung failure in some individuals. The disease symptoms are flu-like but they develop in 5-14 days after contracting virus, unlike flu that develops in 2-3 days. Besides, COVID-19 symptoms can persist for more than four weeks.
The most common symptoms are:
- Elevated body temperature;
- General weakness;
- Dry cough;
- Shortness of breath.
The antibodies to COVID-19 can be found in the blood during 2-3 weeks after exposure. The test allows identifying both IgG and IgM (Immunoglobulin G and Immunoglobulin M, two types of antibodies). IgG remains positive, but the antibody level drops over time.
How does COVID-19 test kit work?
The test kit contains 5 bands each for one-time use. The tests are suitable for the whole blood, serum, and blood plasma. The bands contain certain substances which when contacting the infected specimen result in the occurrence of red stripes.
What does the kit test contain?
