Serological (antibody) test and nose-and-throat swab for Covid-19 diagnosis at Auxologico

SEROLOGICAL (ANTIBODY) TEST AGAINST COVID-19 AT AUXOLOGICO 

At Auxologico you can book, exclusively online, the ECLIA quantitative serological test for Total Ig. This test detects and measures both IgG and IgM immunoglobulins at the same time, with 99.81% specificity and sensitivity above 95%.

The test indicates whether or not antibodies against Covid-19 are present. If so, this may indicate that you have been exposed to the virus, but a positive antibody test does not guarantee that you are immune to coronavirus.

ALSO FOR COMPANIES AND TOUR OPERATORS

Both the serological test and nose-and-throat swab are available also to companies and tour operators. To this regard, they can enter special agreements for the screening of employees by mailing Auxologico's Agreement Service at the following address: convenzioni-mi@auxologico.it

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER A POSITIVE ANTIBODY TEST?

If your antibody test gives a positive result, you will be contacted to fix an appointment to get a nose-and-throat swab for the search of viral RNA. This procedure is required to rule out the presence of the virus and associated risks of contagion. The swab will be taken free of charge at Auxologico within a few days from the positive serological test. Waiting for the swab, you: 

  • must observe self-isolation at home or in other self-isolation facilities;
  • in case of a positive serological test, you must immediately inform your General Practitioner, if any. You must observe self-isolation at home and remain quarantined in the modes indicated, as long as instructed and, in any case, until negativisation. This is assessed after minimum 14 days from the disappearance of the symptoms by means of two negative swabs taken after 24 hours. Swabbing should be scheduled in agreement with your General Practitioner;
  • if you do not have a General Practitioner, you will be obliged to self-isolation at home. Auxologico doctors will instruct you about the initial behaviours to be kept until you are taken in charge by ATS, the regional health-care agency. ATS will specify times and modes for both continuing quarantine and taking other 2 swabs, once you are asymptomatic. Negativisation is assessed after minimum14 days from the disappearance of the symptoms by means of two negative swabs taken after 24 hours; 
  • if the swab is negative and you are asymptomatic, you can discontinue self-isolation and return to social life.
