    The antibody test we use is a blood serum test to detect IgG antibodies. The medical assistant/phlebotomist will collect a blood sample through venipuncture and send the specimen to our partnering lab. The presence of IgG antibodies may mean a person has assumed immunity to COVID-19.

  • Do I need to make an appointment for COVID-19 antibody testing?

    No. If you are not symptomatic and want to know if you may have assumed immunity to COVID-19, antibody testing is available at many of our clinics on a walk-in basis.

  • What are IgG antibodies?

    The immune system makes antibodies to protect the body from

    The immune system makes antibodies to protect the body from current or future infections, such as coronavirus. At MD Now, we test for the antibody, Immunoglobulin G (IgG), which protects against bacterial and viral infections. Detection of IgG antibodies in a blood serology test serves as a standard method to determine if a person has been infected with SARS-CoV-2 and developed specific antibodies to this infection.

     

    IgG antibodies are detected days to several weeks after a person has been infected and may remain elevated for a significant period of time after. These long-term antibodies mean you were most likely exposed to COVID-19 in the past and may allow you to return to your normal daily activities.
