Home antibody tests marketed to the general public have not been validated in the UK. Superdrug and Babylon both had to withdraw their tests from sale. (2/3) https://t.co/fc4tP3KSzB (2/3)


@PeterVWharton @Adam_GeorgePR @CharlotteCGill I’m convinced I had it early Jan. waiting to buy an antibody test. Superdrug/Babylon all sold out. Would be interested to know if anyone who had a hacking cough in Dec/Jan has antibodies confirmed by test.


@superdrug after 9 days waiting for my result for my COVID-19 antibody test Superdrug said they lost my sample. They’re sending me a new sample pack for Monday/Tuesday. So until they receive my sample back next Friday I could receive my result. 2 weeks result back not 2 days.

Superdrug antibody test came back as Negative, which was a surprise. I'll double check with the NHS test that will be released in a few years. https://t.co/ztNn1n51cw

@Mr_SaMuj @krishgm I know Some people that had symptoms but were never tested, and if this thing has been round since January if not earlier then what’s To say loads haven’t had it already! Might just buy a Superdrug antibody test when their back I stock, then if I’ve had it I’ll crack on


@superdrug when is the antibody test coming back in stock ??? And are your staff going to get a big discount? Other companies are providing tests for all their staff for free.

What about Superdrug's website? Alas, no update like Babylon have done, just shows the same message as yesterday about the product not being available - that's not helpful at all https://t.co/LlZAeRnvPp 8/n https://t.co/gyJ8cQrIF4


For anyone interested I have the result of my Superdrug Covid antibody test. It had come back negative. Still waiting for my wife's result but I will be surprised if it's not the same.


@SkyNews if we was given the antibody test kit everyone could be tested like the ones superdrug were selling


Why won't Govt arrange for GP surgeries to provide antibody test for those who want one? Why shut down supplies from Superdrug, etc., & tell us we can't go to private clinics & get a test? What's actually going on here?!


@LauraJDawson26 @superdrug The Superdrug test does not produce a near instant result at home like a pregnancy test, instead it involves collecting a sample at home and sending to a lab. The price is pretty similar to other similar antibody tests you can buy for Hep, Hiv etc. It doesn't seem excessive

@msjanebond007 The antibody test was on sale at Superdrug for £69 but has been withdrawn. Nobody has offered me a test at all.

@BenPBradshaw So how can they open schools on Monday? You can’t even get antibody test at Superdrug because, it was quickly overwhelmed.


Superdrug are doing Coronavirus Antibody Test Service but you very unlikely to get one, there all running out. I look on the site everyday for the last one week.

@superdrug I posted my results for the antibody test yesterday and then saw this posted. I have tried calling the helpline number but it is dead. Can you advise if I will get my results and if not an immediate refund. #superdrugantibodytest https://t.co/b9OFtOXA2L


@BBCHughPym do we know if there have been any positive results from the Superdrug covid antibody test? Everyone I know, quite sure they had it, all testing negative




@BBCFergusWalsh do we know if there have been any positive results from the Superdrug covid antibody test? Everyone I know, quite sure they had it, all testing negative


@LeedsInShetland @Michael_TSB Same as the people paying £70 for a covid antibody test from superdrug that have a less than 65% accuracy rate

@Toytowner @dimbleby_jd @susannareid100 Firstly the Superdrug test is an antibody one and not a check on if you currently have the virus. To order a govt at home test kit care home managers or relatives could easily do this themselves. All they need to input is the name, d.o.b and nat ins no. New availability added 8am


@rebeccaryder1 @LilMissSushi Superdrug were supposed to be selling one that is 100% effective, but have now stopped selling it because apparently the finger prick ones don't work properly https://t.co/ff0C5OoJHq


@manontherail @PeterKGeoghegan Now available from Superdrug (!) https://t.co/dwOUuDDg8x


I'm going to ignore the Negative antibody test result from my recent Superdrug finger prick sample where I took the sample on Day 44, given the regulatory pause on the testing of blood samples taken this way, as the MHRA says to treat results so far as unreliable 7/n


dralex: PLS NOTE THESE ARE NOT OUR TEST. For folk who thought their £59 test eas too good to be true were correct. It was. 'Superdrug suspends sales of antibody tests following questions over reliability' https://t.co/7bZla1TVGj


@MattHancock Hi Matt Hancock I am from bridport in Dorset my local shop I selling your antibody test for £69.00 in superdrug nobody can pay for that

when can we get the antibody test kit done in the uk why have you stopped superdrug form selling them when clearly there is a need for them


@superdrug I posted my anti-body test yesterday but have just read this. Will my test be processed and when will I get my results? https://t.co/z5ymG7lyJQ


1)I have just seen that Superdrug and Lloyds pharmacy have been told to stop processing coronavirus antibody test samples.The reason being that,although the test has been approved by PHE,the *method* of taking blood by finger prick is not considered as reliable as vein extraction


@HannahPearl_1 Hi Hannah! thanks so much for getting in touch in regards to the Antibody Test. I'd love to help. You can find about how the test works as well as other information here - https://t.co/iwzppfynWc . If there is anything else, please do pop back . Thanks - Sophie.


@superdrug I was just reading this and wondering if you would still be analysing the antibody tests that have already been sent back to you? https://t.co/GtlvEgPlBd

@Laconic_doc I have just written to Superdrug to ask them for a refund on the £69 I paid for their finger prick sample covid-19 antibody test


@superdrug hi, I sent my antibody test back yesterday. Will it still be processed?


I wonder if consumers like me who paid £69 for a covid-19 antibody test where they have already got a result back, will refund consumers now that the tests with finger prick blood sample method have to be validated by the MHRA? Hello @superdrug

@E55amgSteve @Cillasup13 @ProfKarolSikora I may buy an antibody test kit from my local Superdrug. IF they are accurate.




Today's to-do list: Drop something at the surgery ☑️ Dispatch orders from the weekend ☑️ Use Superdrug antibody test ⬜ Submit complaint to the NUJ ⬜


I've just received and done the Superdrug home antibody test. It's relatively simple to do, but getting enough blood takes ages! I needed about 20 good drops to get to the required level in the tube. The return instructions are quite involved, so follow them precisely.


Superdrug becomes the 1st high-street retailer to offer an at-home coronavirus testing kit - testing your blood for coronavirus antibodies to see if they have already beaten the virus & gained some immunity to it. (The testing kit costs £69). #Covid19UK https://t.co/HtTa1M1pRr

@ClareMSimpson @JaneEMCallaghan Yes, official advice is not to use the superdrug test. I spoke to a GP last week, and he said they knew as much as us about when antibody tests would be readily available, and who would be able to access them.

@SkyNews @KulveerRanger same has WHERE THE HELL IS THE ANTIBODY TEST IKIT superdrug are selling them get a fucking move on you stupid government lost faith in you all now. everything is been dragged no action nothing


I will share the screenshot of my Superdrug antibody test result with my GP by email today. I look forward to discussing it with her during our weekly followup call on Tuesday 9/n


I'm sure that as part of the terms of the Superdrug antibody test, I had to accept that my GP would be notified, but I've not been asked to provide my GP details, so maybe the policy has changed? 8/n

@superdrug - nowhere on your website does it allow you to make the purchase? https://t.co/JEQ8eR2Bjm


@Midisticks @superdrug I’m not defending Superdrug. I literally don’t give a fuck what they sell. I’m simply saying that an antibody test is totally useless in this country. We do not have “immunity passports” and we have no idea how long antibodies protect for.
