Antibody Testing FAQs

What is Antibody Testing?

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.

 

  • A positive result means you do have the SARS-CoV-2 antibody in your bloodstream, which means you have been exposed to the virus previously and potentially developed an immunity.
  • A negative result means you do not have the SARS-CoV-2 antibody in your bloodstream, which means you have not been exposed to the virus previously.

 

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.

Will Insurance Cover the Cost of My Test?

The lab will email you results along with a receipt that you can then file for potential full or partial reimbursement with your insurance. 

When Should I Take an Antibody Screening Test?

Medical experts are very clear on this:

 

  • You can only take this antibody test if you feel that you have been exposed to COVID-19 AND you have not displayed any symptoms for over two weeks after you think you were exposed.
  • You CANNOT take this antibody test if you are actively showing symptoms of COVID-19. Instead, you should immediately go to a hospital instead to take the PCR test.

Why is Antibody Testing Important?

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:

 

  • Healthcare workers
  • Emergency services personnel
  • Transportation
  • Food supply workers 

 

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:

 

  • The antibodies for the known coronavirus strains have displayed immunity for up to a year. 
  • Many of the first reported reinfection cases are believed to be false positives for the initial viral tests (not the antibody tests).
  • Developing research reveals a low reinfection rate for COVID-19, as the presence of antibodies indicates some physical resistance and response from your immune system.

 

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.
