Why should you be tested at The Shimeøn Clinic?
Currently, COVID-19 Antibody Tests are only available to NHS workers and care home residents and staff.
At The Shimeøn Clinic, we want to make safe and effective antibody testing available for everyone in West Sussex. Our antibody tests determine whether or not you have previously been infected by the virus by identifying antibodies in your bloodstream.
These tests are crucial in order to protect others, especially family members and those most vulnerable. It will also give you some peace of mind, as many people with the virus don’t show any symptoms, so you may be unaware you’ve already had it.
It is our commitment to ensure that you are in safe hands during the appointment, by our licensed medical professional.
About the Biozek IgG/ IgM Rapid Tests
We only use the Biozek IgG/ IgM Rapid Tests. These tests are safe and have a 98.6% accuracy rate to detect COVID-19 antibodies in your bloodstream. This test will determine whether or not you have had the COVID-19 virus, and you must currently be healthy for this test to be completed.
The blood test checks two types of antibodies: IgG (past infection) and IgM (current or recent infections). The Biozek test kits are registered with the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), are CE Certified, and are used by a number of NHS Trusts. We have been supplied with these tests from a Netherlands-based manufacturer, and the test accuracy has been validated independently by the Pasteur Institute, Paris.
