What do the results mean?
The test strip has three different lines; one for IgG, one for IgM and one control line. There are four different valid results:
IgM + Control – The sample is positive for IgM. This means the patient is in the early stages of an infection and combined with the common symptoms, is positive for COVID-19
IgG + IgM + Control – The sample is positive for both IgG and IgM and therefore positive for COVID-19
Control only – The sample is negative
If the control line does not appear, the test is void and should be repeated, irrespective of how many test lines are visible.
