Pure Integrative Pharmacy is the first pharmacy in BC to sell a Health Canada approved COVID-19 test.

Intended for use by healthcare practitioners, the NADAL® test uses a drop of blood, a drop of buffer, and about 10 minutes of your time to get a result. There are 10 tests in each kit.

With 7 pages of clinical directions for use, the manufacturer notes, "The NADAL® COVID-19 IgG/IgM Test is a lateral flow chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of anti SARS-CoV-2 IgG and IgM antibodies in human serum or plasma specimens ... in response to recent or prior infection and may also detect a response to vaccination. The test procedure is not automated and requires no special training or qualification."

That basically means the test looks for COVID-19 antibodies in your blood. Of course, there are some noted limitations attached to that.

These are rapid serology test kits that test for both antibodies and active COVID-19 infection:

  • Approved by Health Canada and third-party validated
  • Tests for IgM (active COVID) and IgG (antibody)
  • Fingerprick test that takes 10 minutes for assay results
  • Must be overseen by a medical practitioner
