COVID-19 Antibody Test Update

18th June 2020

We are pleased to say that the MHRA national review of capillary blood sampling for COVID-19 is now complete. The outcome for all NHS, Public and Private laboratories is that with effect from 15th June all sampling of capillary blood for COVID-19 antibodies, whether by healthcare professional or patient, must be collected from a CE marked IVD kit. Following CE marking and product registration in accordance with MHRA regulations we hope to be in a position to resume patient self-collected antibody testing within the next few weeks.
