Coronavirus Antibody Testing

Paramus Coronavirus Antibody Testing at AFC Urgent Care

AFC Urgent Care Paramus is now capable of performing COVID-19 antibody testing, known as SARS-CoV-2 AB. Antibody testing requires a blood test and detects past infection with coronavirus. Results are typically available within 48 hours.

What are the requirements for antibody testing?

Patients interested in antibody testing must be asymptomatic for at least 14 days prior to the test, including a cough, fever or shortness of breath.

What’s the difference between PCR diagnostic testing and antibody testing?

The COVID-19 PCR test is a nasal swab used to diagnose active cases of the COVID-19 virus. Antibody testing is performed through a blood draw and can detect past infection with coronavirus rather than an active case. Antibody testing is only available for asymptomatic patients.

What do the results mean?

It is important to continue following local and federal health and safety guidelines, regardless of what the results of your test say. These include practicing social distancing, wearing protective face coverings in public and washing your hands frequently. 

A positive test result indicates that you have been exposed to coronavirus and illicit an immune response. However, research is still in progress to determine whether or not antibodies offer you protection against further infection from the COVID-19 virus. Negative test results indicate that you have not been exposed to coronavirus, but may have been exposed too recently to develop antibodies or immune response.

For more information on antibody testing, please check the CDC website for the latest updates.

AFC Urgent Care FAQs

  • Why does AFC provide two different COVID tests?

    We offer a rapid test because they provide highly reliable results on the spot; however, they do produce more false negatives than the RT-PCR COVID-19 Test. Doing both tests is our way of ensuring that you get the most accurate results possible without having to put your life on hold.

  • How long does it take to get a COVID test?

    We're able to get many patients in and out in a matter of minutes, but the length of time you'll spend in our clinic will depend on wait times that day.

  • How much does it cost to get a COVID test?

    That will ultimately depend on your insurance coverage. Presently, many people with insurance are able to get tested at no charge. If you’re uninsured, AFC’s cash pay prices are highly competitive – contact us for the details.
