COVID-19 rapid test identifies the body’s response to coronavirus after the onset of infection and gives a qualitative yes/no result within 10 minutes. Implementing rapid screening for COVID-19 has huge time and cost savings when compared to laboratory screening, and will help to control the spread of the virus by identifying infection rapidly and accurately. The test cassette is easy to use, needing only a finger-prick sample to function, much like a home blood glucose test. As well as whole blood, the cassette can also be run with serum or plasma samples.

Undergoing IVF

It’s a time for great cheer and positivity if you are planning IVF treatment cycles. The wave of Covid-19 infections across UK is now past its peak and the HFEA announced that IVF clinics across the UK can now resume treatments. Fertility clinics have in turn, also announced their own strategies of coping with the pandemic. They have taken steps to ensure social distancing, avoiding overcrowding in waiting areas, adequate sanitation and use of protective equipment for frontline workers.

But resuming your treatment requires that you go for in-person consultation and clinical procedures. This may entail coming in contact with potential carriers and infected people. Though research has not proven that pregnant women or women trying to get pregnant are at a higher risk of getting infected, a possible infection can set your treatment further behind. You may end up losing precious time, delaying your hopes of becoming a parent. Not to mention the consequent and unimaginable heartbreak and toll on your mental health. Also, incidence of high fever is known to affect sperm quality temporarily, which can impact your treatment.

Getting yourself tested in case you have symptoms associated with Coronavirus such as high fever, fatigue, a persistent cough, shortness of breath or loss of sense of smell/taste or have experienced them in the past should be your top most priority to ensure continuity of treatment. Therefore, it Is recommended that both you and your partner get yourselves tested using our at-home test kits appropriate for you:

A PHE approved Rapid Covid-19 Antibody Home Test by Abbot Laboratories, conducted by TDL

Antibody testing can tell whether a person has been previously infected. It assesses whether your immune system has produced antibodies in response to Covid-19. It is carried out in our lab and has a 99% detection rate for antibodies.

We recommend that you opt for an antibody test before each IVF cycle to know if you have been infected recently. This will ensure your personal safety and of those around you.
