About Our COVID-19 Antibody Test
This serology blood test identifies the presence of antibodies that indicate
that a person had an immune response to COVID-19 (also known as coronavirus
or SARS-CoV-2). A positive result to this antibody (IgG) test indicates
that you may have had previous exposure to COVID-19 and your body has
Although It may take up to 14 days after the onset of symptoms for antibodies to be developed within the body, 91% of people develop such antibodies within the first 8-13 days. Some people infected with COVID-19 will never exhibit symptoms but will have a detectable antibody response. While there is belief that the presence of antibodies may provide immunity to future infections, there is not yet enough data to state this conclusively.
This is an antibody test used to detect the presence of antibodies indicating a immune system response to a past COVID-19 infection, not to diagnose active infections.
Please call our office prior to coming into the clinic so that we can keep all of our patients and staff safe.
