The COVID-19 Antibodies is a serological test that detects human antibodies (proteins belonging to the immunoglobulin class), IgG & IgM. This test is done by a traditional blood draw.
This test is for individuals who would like to know if they have had past exposure to Covid-19. If you are actively sick or have symptoms this test is not for you.
After you complete our digital intake form, a doctor, nurse practitioner, or physician’s assistant will contact you for a consultation. After the consultation, the provider may order an antibody test and or nasal swab as medically necessary based on symptoms, risk factors, and likelihood of exposure.
Upon infection with the SARS-CoV-2 virus, the patient’s immune system tries to fight the virus by producing blood circulating molecules known as antibodies. IgM is a class of antibodies that appear 3-5 days after infection.
Upon infection with the SARS-CoV-2 virus, the patient’s immune system tries to fight the virus by producing blood circulating molecules known as antibodies. IgG is a second class of antibodies that appears around 21 days after infection and remains in your system for months if not longer.
No. If a test is ordered after your consultation, a licensed medical professional from a network of service providers will arrive to obtain your specimen. The specimen is transported to CLIA certified lab that is CAP accredited. Testing processes and results are conducted and provided by a 3rd party laboratory.
The strength of each person’s immune system varies. It is thought that a person may develop immune defense once they develop IgG antibodies. We are not certain at this time because we lack data from controlled tests and studies.
The Antobodies Test IgG & IgM are run on a fully automated chemiluminescence analyzer. These tests are being conducted under FDA guidelines in a CLIA Certified Lab. The Diazyme serological test notification is now listed on FDA’s website under “FAQs on Diagnostic Testing for SARS-CoV-2”
It is projected that the antibodies will remain present in your system for a significant amount of time. However, the exact time is not currently known.
We expect to get the results in 24-72 hours from when the lab receives the specimen.
Depending on the outcome of your test, your provider will call you or send you your results digitally.
Not at this time.
