COVID-19 IgG / IgM Rapid 10 Minute Test
On March 16th, 2020 the U.S. government took steps towards Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) testing by allowing developers of certain tests to distribute the products in the U.S. without the requirement for an FDA approval or Emergency Use Authorization (EUA).
On May 4th, 2020 the “Policy for Coronavirus Disease-2019 Tests During the Public Health Emergency (Revised)” was published by the FDA. “Unless and until an EUA is issued that authorizes additional testing environments for a specific test, under CLIA, use of that test is limited to laboratories certified to perform high complexity testing, including testing at the point-of-care when the site is covered by the laboratory’s CLIA certificate for high-complexity testing.” https://www.fda.gov/media/135659/download
As a result, the COVID-19 IgG and IgM Rapid Test is being distributed only to high-complexity laboratories in compliance with the above FDA regulation.
Per FDA statement of 04/07/20, “serological tests measure the amount of antibodies or proteins present in the blood when the body is responding to a specific infection, like COVID-19. In other words, the test detects the body’s immune response to the infection caused by the virus rather than detecting the virus itself. In the early days of an infection when the body’s immune response is still building, antibodies may not be detected.
Serological tests can play a critical role in the fight against COVID-19 by helping healthcare professionals to identify individuals who have overcome an infection in the past and have developed an immune response. In the future, this may potentially be used to help determine, together with other clinical data, that such individuals are no longer susceptible to infection and can return to work. In addition, these test results can aid in determining who may donate a part of their blood called convalescent plasma, which may serve as a possible treatment for those who are seriously ill from COVID-19. This is why Vice President Mike Pence called on the laboratory community to develop serological tests for COVID-19.” https://www.fda.gov/news-events/press-announcements/coronavirus-covid-19-update-serological-tests
IgM and IgG may be helpful biomarkers to make determinations of a patient’s immune status, whether or not they are contagious, recovering, etc. The presence of IgG could mean that the patient has mounted an immune response following exposure to SARS-CoV-2. These individuals may also have been asymptomatic and never tested, or may have had mild symptoms that passed.
This test is only distributed to high-complexity laboratories. This is not an at-home test.
