IgG Antibody COVID

Is it possible that IgG never develops or takes a year or more to be detected in a true positive RT/PCR-COVID 19 patient? If it is possible, why does this occur? I have more than 50 % of PCR positive patients in a group of 30 patients and I am wondering if their IgG comes out negative what is a possible explanation?

Blood Collection Device

I have been made aware of a blood collection device marketed by Tasso Inc. It looks attractive but from what I understand it may that the fluid collected is mixed with interstitial fluid. Has anyone experience with this device? Are there data convincingly showing that variables correlate with either venous or capillary blood? Is this device FDA approved?
