The drugstore chain dm offers an corona antibody test in the online shop. The Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Health is now checking whether the retailer is even allowed to sell the 60 Euro test kits to consumers, reports the "Lebensmittelzeitung" .

With the test kits, the customer takes blood at home and then sends the sample to an laboratory. There it should then be checked whether corona antibodies can be found in the blood. A positive result would mean that the test person has already contracted Corona and has now developed antibodies against the virus.

The problem: "Corona antibody tests are only permitted to be given to specialist staff if such kits have a diagnostic purpose," said a spokesman for the Ministry of Health in relation to the "Lebensmittelzeitung" newspaper.

Test kits that are then analyzed in a laboratory, on the other hand, do. This is also the view of the Ministry of Health, according to Bayer, according to "Lebensmittelzeitung".

Already this summer, dm had problems with corona tests in its range. In Austria , the drugstore brought a corona test from the manufacturer Novogenia to its online range. The Federal Office for Safety in Health Care then found deficiencies in the labeling and certification. The test was temporarily withdrawn from the market , but is now available again for 119 euros.
