Antigen test are immunoassays that detects the presence of a specific viral antigen, which implies current viral infection.
"IgM are antibodies produced by the body early in the disease in response to the antigens like bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites etc, whereas IgG are antibodies produced by the body later in the disease, the convalescent phase, when the patient is recovering or had previous disease which confers immunity."
The IgM/IgG test detects antibodies, both IgM and IgG, in the blood against Covid-19 pathogen.
There are two ways this test can be done, one is ELISA and other is rapid immune chromatography "The rapid immune chromatography can be done in whole blood, plasma or serum. Just a drop of blood is required for the test like blood glucose monitoring.
There will be three red bands. One is the control band, which should be positive, to see the test cassette is working properly.
If it is negative, the test is considered invalid and another cassette should be used.
The other two red bands -- IgM and IgG -- may be positive or negative.
"If IgM and IgG both are negative, it means a person never had any virus and no treatment is needed.
If IgM and IgG both are positive, the person is infected and may be symptomatic or asymptomatic carrier.
He/she probably needs conservative symptomatic treatment.
If IgM is only positive, the person is infected but is asymptomatic carrier.
So reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) is needed to confirm and treat that person.
However, if IgG is only positive, then the person has developed immunity and is in less need of treatment.
The PCR test detects the antigen virus and is now the gold standard for detecting most of the infections.
An asymptomatic carriers may harbour the virus but not suffer from it. However, he/she can transmit the infection to others.
