Serologic tests for SARS-CoV-2 are intended for individuals who may have had COVID-19 symptoms but who were never symptomatic or no longer symptomatic. The tests determine the presence of antibodies to SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, and can help to identify individuals who have been infected with the virus. Antibody testing should not be used as the sole basis to diagnose or exclude SARS-CoV-2 infection.
Avg. 1-3 days.
Who should test?
- People who have recently had an infection with SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) that was confirmed by PCR (molecular) nasal/mouth swab testing and have had no symptoms for at least 7 days
- People who have received the vaccine and wish to check effectiveness or continued effectiveness
- People who have recently had a flu-like respiratory illness that may or may not have been COVID-19 because it was not confirmed by virus testing, and have had no symptoms for at least 7 days
- People who want to see if they might have been exposed to COVID-19 and carry antibodies to the SARS-CoV-2 virus, but have had few or no symptoms
Note: Patients with an active respiratory infection should not test until at least 20 days after the start of symptoms. During early infection when symptoms are present, the immune system may not be making anti-COVID-19 IgG antibodies in sufficient quantity to be detected by the test.
