A COVID-19 Antibody Test can help identify if you have been infected with COVID-19 (Coronavirus).
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) states that "The tests detect the presence of antibodies in the blood – if antibodies are present, that indicates that the person has been exposed to the virus and developed antibodies against it, which may mean that person has at least some immunity to the coronavirus."
An antibody test checks for the presence of antibodies which are the body's immune response to the infection caused by the virus. It may help identify people who may have been exposed to the SARS-CoV-2 virus or have recovered from the COVID-19 infection.
We do not offer the COVID-19 test, which detects the virus itself and is used for those who recently started having symptoms.
Yes, an Antibody Test can help indicate if you have been infected with the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) by detecting antibodies in your system, even if you never had any symptoms.
According to the CDC, the majority of infected people in the United States may never display any symptoms. Another reason for some of our patients to get tested is because they may have been in contact with someone who was potentially exposed.
You can take an Antibody Test if you have never had symptoms of COVID-19.
If you have had symptoms of COVID-19, you must wait a minimum of 7 days since the start of your symptoms to take an Antibody Test. Please check with your healthcare provider or the CDC for a full list of COVID-19 symptoms.
It will take 2-3 business days to receive your tests results. You will receive an email with instructions on how to access and interpret your test results on the lab's secure portal.
