Coronavirus disease (COVID-2019) is a highly contagious and is caused by a new virus which was identified on December 2019. The virus causes severe respiratory illness with similar symptoms like influenza such as cough, fever and in many cases severe pneumonia which is difficult to be distinguished by symptoms at first. The incubation period is generally 3-7 days till no more than 14 days. Currently, there is no specific treatment available for COVID-19. If the medical resources are insufficient, the death rate of disease will increase significantly. Therefore, early diagnosis, isolation and treatment of the infected people is very crucial to control the spreading of the disease. The IgA/IgG/IgM Rapid Test is a sandwich lateral flow chromatographic immunoassay for the simultaneous detection and differentiation of IgA/IgG/IgM anti- COVID-19 in human serum, plasma or whole blood. It is intended to be used as a screening test and as an aid in the diagnosis of infection with COVID-19 virus. IgM is the first antibody to be produced in the body in response to an infection and when present in high amount, may indicate a current or very recent infection.IgG antibodies take longer to produce but last a lifetime.If you are positive for IgG but not for IgM, you have probably been infected for at least two months.
