The Roche Elecsys® Anti-SARS-CoV-2 S antibody test is a blood test. The test’s principal use is to determine if an individual has already been infected with COVID, whether they have antibodies and what degree of immunity exists. It can also assess whether a person might need revaccinating in the future and establish the level at which a person’s defences are functioning prior to having the vaccination.
As is the case with cellular life, coronaviruses are encased by a fatty membrane, commonly referred to as an ‘envelope’. With a view to entering a cell, enveloped viruses harness proteins to latch on to the membrane of a cell, and take control of it.
The test focuses on targeting antibodies that develop against the spike protein, which has been found to have highly mercurial characteristics. In carrying out tests to measure immunity, such as the Roche Elecsys® Anti-SARS-CoV-2 S test, society can gain vital insight into how the vaccine is performing.
