The T-SPOT COVID test is intended for qualitative detection of a cell mediated (T cell) immune response to SARS CoV-2 in human whole blood. The test is intended for use as an aid in identifying individuals with an adaptive, or acquired, immune response to SARS-CoV-2, specifically the T cell response.

The T-SPOT COVID test is proven to detect evidence of a T cell-mediated immune response to SARS-CoV-2 infection in PCR positive patients with negative serology test results. T-SPOT COVID test results, complemented by serology (antibody) results, may give a more comprehensive view of an individuals’ immune response to SARS-CoV-2.
