Bounce Hydration offers the leading COVID-19 antibody test. Created by Roche Labs, it is 99.81% accurate.
Like all of our IV Drips, your Antibody Test will be conducted in the same safe, secure, and relaxing environment you already enjoy from Bounce Hydration.
We will drive to where you are in Houston to administer the test, and your test results will be e-mailed to you from the laboratory within 48-72 hours.
Launched on May 3, 2020, this antibody test is the most accurate one available.
1. The only FDA-approved test that also has EUA approval
2. The only test specific for COVID-19 with no cross-reactivity with other viruses
3. The only test with 99.81% accuracy for COVID-19 antibody
4. Early detection rate as low as only two molecules of the COVID-19 antibody
The process is rather straightforward, and it’s designed to give you maximum peace of mind:
1. Bounce Hydration will arrive at your Houston-area home or business.
2. Each person taking the test will fill out the paper consent from the lab and then a quick electronic consent from Bounce Hydration.
3. One of our Registered Nurses will draw your blood.
4. Bounce Hydration will send the results to the lab. We are not involved in handling results
5. The lab will contact you via email with your results in 48-72 hours.
The entire process will take only 15 minutes to complete. Bounce Hydration requires a minimum of 2 people for standalone antibody testing. However, anyone with a solo drip appointment can add on the antibody testing as an extra.
Also known as serologic testing, an antibody test looks for antibodies in your bloodstream. Your body develops these antibodies in response to a viral or bacterial infection.
Antibody testing typically gives two possible results.
The test does NOT tell you if you currently have COVID-19. It can only reveal that you were exposed to it in the past. The presence of the antibodies in your body means that you’ve built up some immunity to coronavirus.
The specific test we administer is called the Elecsys® Anti-SARS-CoV-2 antibody test. It examines a small sample of your blood to check for the specific antibodies that fight COVID-19. The test has 100% sensitivity and 99.81% specificity, or in non-doctor terms:
With this high degree of specificity, there’s an extremely low chance of a false positive because our test shows no cross-reactivity to the common cold, HIV, and other coronaviruses.
Our 99.81% specificity gives people maximum confidence that they have exposed to SARS-CoV-2 and have developed antibodies against that virus.
The lab will email you results along with a receipt that you can then file for potential full or partial reimbursement with your insurance.
Medical experts are very clear on this:
Antibody testing tells you whether you had coronavirus and have since recovered – even if you were asymptomatic. That’s the principal benefit of the testing: the knowledge about your personal situation in regards to COVID-19.
The antibody test we administer helps high-risk groups with an increased rate of exposure, such as:
Even though the people in these groups might already have developed a certain level of immunity, the test gives them peace of mind if they wish to keep working and/or go back to work.
Since scientists are still working on conclusive answers, testing also helps them collect data about the coronavirus and people’s response to it in terms of public health. For example, research has shown us the following:
An antibody test also helps because, if you have antibodies present, you could help your community by donating your blood. Some physicians use antibody-rich blood to treat severe patients, as early research points to successes.
