Superdrug COVID-19 antibody testing service
Visit Superdrug's health clinic to get a COVID-19 antibody test. One of their trained nurses will collect a blood sample which will be sent to their partner lab and the results analysed by their team of Online Doctors.
What does the service involve?
The service involves collecting a blood sample to perform a test to see if you have Coronavirus (SARS-COV-2) antibodies. The blood sample will be taken by one of our trained nurses via a venous blood draw. This means that we will collect a small sample of blood from one of your veins. The sample is then sent to a certified medical lab to be tested. Your results will be analysed by one of our Superdrug Online Doctors who will give you your results via the Superdrug Online Doctor platform.
How accurate are the results?
The COVID-19 antibody test is performed by Online Doctor’s partner lab, The Doctors Laboratory (TDL). TDL is a UK accredited medical lab who are responsible for performing the test and ensuring its accuracy. TDL is currently reporting a sensitivity of 97.5% and specificity of 100% for the venous sampling test.
This means that:
- of 1000 people who have had COVID-19, 975 will correctly test positive.
- of 1000 people who have not had COVID-19, 1000 will correctly test negative.
How much does it cost?
Price is £89 (includes the nurse appointment)
