I would LOVE to get this test, have antibodies, and get that immunity passport/certificate that may come out. We were in and out of so many international airports in Oct, Nov. and Dec ,of 2019 and January, Feb and March of 2020 anything is possible. I must say thought, we never felt sick or anything at all.

Anything that claims to be 100% accurate is likely wrong. Close but not 100%.

But 100 has only 1 significant digit. So claiming 100 only means it is somewhere between 50 and 150. I know I have a strange pet peeve on significant digits,

typical lab testing takes years for approval and designates a sensitivity and specificity rating - There is 0% that a test developed within the past 6 months has near the amount of data needed without having tested every single person in a country who had it. There is also no other tests available or "gold standard" to compare it to. Many of the antibody tests coming out are showing cross reactivity to the other typical coronavirus' that circulate in the US commonly. EUA/emergency use only as the US has right now for any covid-19 testing has to only provide data for 30 tests run that resulted the way they should have in the lab environment. Not saying the covid tests of any sort are incorrect, but results need to be taken with a grain of salt.
As a clinical lab scientist, we have to do more quality control on some things weekly than was needed for the EUA tests.
