I am going to go straight to the point:
We all need to get a rapid screening test for the SARS-CoV-2…one that is quick and easy. In 10 minutes you can get your results, very much like a pregnancy test. It tells you if you’ve been exposed as recently as 3 days ago, or if you have been exposed weeks ago.
This valuable information is essential so that if you test positive, you can follow up with your doctor to get a PCR blood test to confirm whether or not you have the live virus. Or to determine if you are a carrier without any symptoms. It’s also important so you can get the best medical care, to self-isolate, and ultimately help to control the spread of SARS-CoV-2. Knowledge is GOLD!
I tested myself last Wednesday and within 10 minutes, NEGATIVE! Here is a short video to show you how happy I am! BUT this is not the end of the tunnel, I will be testing myself again in another two weeks, even without any symptoms I can be a carrier and so can you!
Recently on my Wellness For Life Radio show, I interviewed Dr. Jarad Wilson from RayBioTech, one of the few companies in the US that manufactures the rapid antibody test kit for the SARS coronavirus-2.
This is not the PCR blood test that looks for the RNA of the live virus which takes around 24 hours for the results. This interview is specifically on the finger prick antibody test, that looks for both IgM and IgG (immunoglobulins) response that indicates whether you’ve been exposed to the virus recently or in the past. This is a screening tool to manage mass testing with fast results.
All positive tests need to be followed up with a PCR blood, sputum or nasal swab test to confirm whether you have a live viral infection or not.
You can listen to the Wellness for Life show on your favorite podcast platform, or my Dr. Susanne TV channel.
Dr. Wilson answered the following questions in the interview:
- Tell us a little about your Rapid Antibody Finger Prick test for the SARS-CoV-2 and how does it work?
- How is the test different from other tests currently available?
- What is the difference between the IgM and the IgG test?
- Why do I need to get tested if I have been self quarantined for 2 weeks and I don’t have any symptoms?
- Which test should I choose, IgM or IgG?
- How accurate is the rapid finger prick antibody test and is it FDA approved?
- How do I get the rapid antibody finger prick test for myself and family that gives results in 10 minutes!?
RayBioTech sells these test kits directly to doctors, clinics, hospitals and research institutions.
BTW, I have no financial interest with RayBiotech, nor do I receive any compensation from them, but I have asked the owner of the company to send a portion of their proceeds to my charity of choice: FeedingAmerica.org.
Ask your doctor to order directly from RayBioTech today:

This is one of the most important recommendations I’ve ever made in the past 30 years as a doctor…I hope you understand the gravity of this request. Get yourself tested as soon as possible. I wish you and your family the very best of health!
Be strong and be safe!
