Test at home whether you have antibodies
Do you want to test from home whether you have made antibodies against the coronavirus? This is possible with the Corona-Gehad test. The Corona-Gehad test is a serological test.
The serological test is a blood test that can be used to show whether corona antibodies (IgG) are present in the blood. Antibodies are produced in response to a virus infection or vaccination. This information can provide more peace of mind and security. The test works optimally from about two to three weeks after the first day that you have been sick or vaccinated.
This qualitative test only shows whether there are antibodies in your blood and does not measure how many antibodies you have. So the result is either positive or negative. No value is given with the result.
This home test is an anonymous test. You will not receive a personalized certificate with the result. Need a certificate? Then make an appointment for a serological test in one of our clinics.

Once the test has arrived by post, you can take the first sample. Watch this video for instructions on how to take it. Then send the sample to Microbe&Lab.
Control in lab
In our own RIVM validated and ISO certified laboratory, your sample will be tested for the presence of SARS-CoV-2 (corona) antibodies.
Within 48 hours of receipt of the return box, you can request the results of the corona antibody test online in a secure and anonymous environment.
Disclaimer: This test remains a snapshot of your antibodies at the time of testing.
The test cannot distinguish between antibodies produced by an infection or by a vaccination.
A positive serological test never counts as ‘proof of recovery’ in the CoronaCheck app.

In the video below you can see how the serological home test works.
About the Corona HAD test
If you have had complaints, we will use a blood test. We do this with a few drops of blood that you take yourself at home with a finger prick. In the laboratory we investigate whether you have produced antibodies against SARS-CoV-2. This way we can see whether you have already had the virus, or whether you have been vaccinated.
This qualitative test only shows whether antibodies have been found in your blood and does not measure how many antibodies you have. So the result is either positive or negative. No value is given with the result.
