How does the COVID-19 instant antibody test work?

Our rapid test cassette is extremely accurate. When opening the test kit, review the instructions carefully. Open the pouch and place the test cassette on a clean surface. From there, disinfect your fingertip and use a lancet to draw a blood sample. Use the provided dropper to draw the blood and place one drop on top of the space labeled “s.” Then add two drops of the buffer to the space labeled “b” on the testing cassette. Results should appear in just three minutes. Any results that appear after 10 minutes are invalid.
