What is the purpose of measuring your protection against Covid-19?
- The purpose of this test is to determine the level of your protection after vaccination or infection. With repeated testing, you can also gain control over how your antibody level changes over time and when you are at risk.
An individual may have very low protection or no protection at all after two doses of vaccine. Over time, the level of antibodies also naturally decreases and immunity decreases.
The test includes two analyzes and answers whether there is a current protection both for the special antibodies formed after vaccination and the antibodies formed after infection. (Neutralizing Antibodies (NAb) and Immunoglobulin G (IgG)).
Is it not enough to be vaccinated?
Vaccines are very effective in a large group and can eradicate disease, but for the individual the protection varies greatly. For Covid vaccines, approximately 10% lacks antibodies after full vaccination (two doses) according to data from our laboratory, which is in good agreement with data from the vaccine manufacturers.
With a measurement of the antibody level, you can get an indication of when you have protection and when you are in the risk zone.
Ensured protection can reduce anxiety in the workplace or for people who are / stay close to someone in a risk group.
For companies A low level of protection for an individual in the workplace can make it possible to plan the risk situation, such as who is to be sent on a business trip, who is to work from home, or who can work close to other employees who are in a risk group. This can also limit the possible spread of infection.
When recommending a third dose, the antibody levels may be the basis for prioritization.
Do you want to check your protection level against Covid-19?
iDr Kliniken, in collaboration with iLab, today uses a revolutionary technology that measures your levels of antibodies
NOTE! This survey is not suitable for travelers to China - contains not IgM (acute antibodies)
The blood is collected via a blood sample in the armpit or in the finger, both show equivalent results.
The protection can only be considered safe for those variants of the Covid-19 vaccine that have been tested against and in the case of new mutations, a vaccinated individual may have insufficient protection despite a high level of antibody in this assay.
