According to new rules from the BAG, the issuance of a certificate based on a positive COVID Antibody Test may not be allowed, if the person who is testing is taking their own blood sample - as it is the case with our test.
We have contacted the BAG to find a solution and for now stopped sales of the test until we have a clear answer on this and until we have established a solution for all existing customers should the test be ruled inadmissible. We have not received a communication from officials yet regarding the admissibility of the test for issuing a certificate.
We will of course do everything we can to be able to continue offering the service to our customers and to contribute to taking some pressure off of healthcare providers like doctors and pharmacies!
We completely support the intention of the new rules from BAG, which to our understanding, is, to make sure that antibody certificates are only issues if a supervised, medically validated sampling process and an ID check is in place. That is why a video-documentation of the sampling process and an ID check are key elements of our sampling process. Each video is reviewed and validated by a medical professional before a test is approved for analysis with the lab.
We think it is time to work together to end this pandemic. We believe, giving everyone easy access to verified knowledge about their personal COVID immunity status and to relief pressure on the healthcare system with self-service-offerings is an important contribution towards that goal!
