COVID 19 Antibody Testing

  • The test being offered is a blood test that checks for SARS CoV 2 virus antibodies. This test checks for IGM and IGG antibodies. An antibody test checks for your body’s response to a virus, not the virus itself.

  • A negative test does not mean you do not have SARS CoV 2 as it may take several days for your body to make antibodies against the virus.

  • A positive test may indicate, you either have SARS CoV 2 or are recovering from it. A positive IGG test does not mean you are immune.

Testing Limitations

  • This test has not been reviewed by the FDA but is being offered under the FDA’s Policy for Diagnostic Tests for Coronavirus Disease 2019, Section IV.D

  • Negative results do not rule out SARS CoV 2 infection, particularly in those who have been in contact with the virus. Follow up testing with a molecular diagnostic should be considered to rule out infection in these individuals.

  • Results from antibody testing should not be used as the sole basis to diagnose or exclude SARS CoV 2 infection or to inform infection status.

  • Early infections may not have generated sufficient antibodies to be positive on the test

  • Currently it is not known if having any IGG antibodies indicates immunity; however, having IGG antibodies does indicate having had the infection.

  • Positive results may be due to past or present infection with non SARS CoV 2 coronavirus strains, such as coronavirus HKU1, NL63, OC43, or 229E.

  • There is a 13% false negative rate (Out of 100 people with the disease up to 13 may falsely test negative).
