Covid Antibody Testing
Our Blusense machine is a portable device specifically designed for single-drop-of-blood diagnostics operations.
Our machine tests for COVID-19 antibodies, to see if you have had previous exposure to the virus and/or had an antibody response to vaccination.
Antibody testing is done by having a one finger-prick blood sample taken in our pharmacy by our Pharmacist. It is tested on site and you will have your results within minutes.
It takes 10 minutes to get your results from when we take a sample. Our Pharmacist will talk you through your results, which are printed for you to take home.
This test is suitable for everyone, but if any of the points below apply to you, we recommend you book your test now:
Antibody testing is suitable for anyone over the age of 16 and the price for the antibody test is €19.99.
No test is 100% accurate, however our diagnostic accuracy is 99%.
negative result (0-20 BAU/mL) means there is no evidence you were previously infected with COVID-19. However, this does not completely rule out past infection, it simply means there are no antibodies currently or remaining in your system.
equivocal result (20-30 BAU/mL) signifies a very low to non-detectable amount of antibodies.
positive result (30-230 BAU/mL) indicates that you have had an immune response to the COVID-19 virus and were likely to have had previous exposure to the virus or had an antibody response to vaccination.
