Covid 19 Antibody Testing

An antibody is a reaction that occurs in your body when your immune system tries to fight a virus. This test ensures that your immune system is up and working. It is also sometimes called a serology test. A trained technician will take a sample of your blood to perform this test.

How is it different from the COVID-19 test?

While the COVID-19 test tells you if you have the virus active right now in your body, a COVID-19 antibody test tells you if you had this virus in the past, which means you could still have it or it’s already gone. The reason behind doing this test is that sometimes people with the virus do not show any symptoms and so do not test for COVID-19. When they test for antibodies, scientists can better understand how the virus affects those who have already recovered from the virus
