What is COVID-19 antibody testing? Antibody tests detect antibodies in the blood when the body is fighting an infection. The test does not detect the actual virus SARS-CoV-2; rather, it detects the body’s immune response to the virus. Currently, FDA has issued Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for serology tests to detect SARS-CoV-2 antibodies.
Who should be tested for COVID-19 IgG Antibody?
If you believe you have been exposed to COVID-19 in the past but never had any symptoms.
If you had symptoms of COVID-19 in the past but was never tested for the virus, and you fully recovered.
If you just want to know if you have antibodies present, since many people may have COVID-19 with minimal symptoms.
I am required to do a COVID-19 test for work. Can I come to InstaHealth for the test? Yes, we do offer the COVID-19 IgM antibody test with results in less than 20 minutes. A positive test indicates you are currently infected and your immune system has started responding to the virus.
