The EDSAB-HOME study is evaluating the detection of SARS-CoV-2 antibodies using home testing kits. These kits are called lateral flow immunoassays. They appear similar to a pregnancy test kit and analyse a small amount of blood obtained from a finger prick.
The study is being run by Public Health England at the request of the Department of Health and Social Care.
Recruitment has now ceased, but the study is ongoing.
