COVID 19 Antibody Testing at QuantuMDX
In the case study below we hear from QuantuMDx, a company who has added regularly COVID-19 antibody testing to its health and safety policies.
First, Jonathan O’Halloran, CEO, explains his reasons for introducing antibody testing to QuantuMDx. Secondly, team member Emma Long, explains why she is taking part in antibody testing.
AbC-19TMSemi-Q Rapid Test
QuantuMDx uses AbC-19TMSemi-Q Rapid Test, a lateral flow test that detects IgG antibodies to the trimeric spike protein of the SARS-CoV-2 virus from a small finger prick of blood. The test produces semi-quantitative results via a line intensity scorecard in only 20 minutes. All components are provided for straightforward and rapid antibody testing.

“We believe it is every government and employers’ duty to protect their staff as much as they can. Part of this is regular COVID testing to ensure the office is COVID free. We run daily testing using a combination of our standard PCR tests and our rapid 30-min PCR test, Q-POCTM. The second part it to ensure everybody knows their antibody status for COVID so that they can plan when they should have their boosters. It baffles me why the government isn’t using antibody tests to be smarter about who needs boosters and when. We want to offer this service to our staff as a benefit so that we can keep them healthy through the next few peaks.”
“It should be part of everybody’s personal health plan. As the government appears to not want to offer it to us, conscientious employers are having to step in. Knowing your antibody status is just the smart and logical thing to do and we are happy that we can offer this to our staff so that they can make an informed decision on when to get booster shots and how comfortable they can be in everyday life.”
Emma Long, Marketing Communications Manager at QuantuMDx
“I’m pleased we have introduced antibody testing at work. COVID-19 has created a lot of uncertainty and unknowns, which carry on despite restrictions lifting. Knowing if I have antibodies is invaluable to me. Without this information I wouldn’t have a clue about my immune response and if my antibodies were waning or not. It gives me the chance to know if and when I need be extra cautious.”
“I think regular antibody testing should be the norm and I will continue to take part in QuantuMDx’s antibody testing alongside the PCR and Q-POC testing. The fact testing is straightforward, and I can get quick results from a small drop of blood is very convenient.”
