Newdays Pharmacy Offer COVID Antibody Tests

Newdays Pharmacy, a Twyford Together supporter, made this announcement on Facebook today;

“Newdays Pharmacy is pleased to announce that with immediate effect we are able to offer Coronovirus COVID-19 Antibody Testing.

The test identifies if the body has developed an antibody response to a COVID-19 infection and is not a viral test to identify if there is a current infection. The antibody test can only be performed 21 days after recovery from COVID-19 symptoms or 28 days after contact with someone with COVID-19 symptoms. This is to ensure that there has been enough time for detectable antibodies to have built up in the blood.

The cost is £69 per person, with the results provided after 10 minutes, and will include a certificate. The test is manufactured in the UK, is approved by the MHRA, looks for 2 types of antibodies (IgM and IgG) and has an overall accuracy of 98.4%.

Appointments are only available by booking in advance, so if you are interested please phone 0118 934 5750 (9am-6pm). Post comments below if you have any questions and we will respond as promptly as we can.”
