GenBody COVID-19 IgM/IgG device is a chromatographic immunoassay kit for the rapid and differential detection of immunoglobulin M (IgM) and immunoglobulin G (IgG) against COVID-19 using serum, plasma and whole blood.

Assay procedure
Capillary blood is used to do the test, prick the finger and collect the blood by a capillary tube. And then, load the blood onto the sample well (S) of the test device.
Reading and interpretation of results
  • Negative: ONLY one band in the control line (C). No COVID-19-specific IgM and IgG were detected. Re-test in 3-5 days if COVID-19 is suspected.
  • IgM Positive: two bands appear in the test line (T) and control line (C) in the left side of device.
  • IgG Positive: two bands appear in the test line (T) and control line (C) in the right side of device.
  • IgG and IgM Positive: each two bands appear in the test line (T) and control line (C) in both side of device.
  • Invalid result: If at 15 minutes, the red band does not appear in the control line (C), the result is considered invalid. If the test is invalid, a new test should be performed with a new patient specimen and a new test device.
Limitations of the test
GenBody COVID-19 IgM/IgG is designed for the detection of IgM and IgG antibodies against novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV). This kit can provide a fast and simple results but, do not completely exclude the possibilities of false positive or false negative results caused by various factors. For confirmation, please make a final decision with clinical symptoms, other testing results, and doctor’s assessment, collectively.
  • GenBody COVID-19 IgM/IgG is only provided for use by clinical laboratories or to healthcare workers for point-of-care testing, and not for at home testing.
Instructions for use will contain the following information
  • This test has not been reviewed by the FDA.
  • Negative results do not rule out SARS-CoV-2 infection, particularly in those who have been in contact with the virus. Follow-up testing with a molecular diagnostic should be considered to rule out infection in these individuals.
  • Results from antibody testing should not be used as the sole basis to diagnose or exclude SARS-CoV-2 infection or to inform infection status.
  • Positive results may be due to past or present infection with non-SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus strains, such as coronavirus HKU1, NL63, OC43, or 229E.
  • Not intended for the screening of donated blood.
Cross-reactivity/analytical specificity
