BioReference Laboratories COVID-19 Blood Antibody Test for Exposure
$125.00 per Test Kit
If you are interested in knowing if you have had a previous infection with the virus that causes COVID-19, you should consider measuring immunity-related proteins in your blood called antibodies. As long as this infection occurred more than ten days ago, this blood draw-based test from BioReference should have >97% accuracy in telling you the answer.
BioReference offers an immunoassay that measures SARS-CoV-2 specific antibodies, correlating with the patient’s adaptive immune response after COVID-19 infection.
This test plays a critical role in the fight against COVID-19 by assessing the antibody response in individuals and populations. It identifies patients who have been exposed to COVID-19 in the past, allowing for detection after the infection has resolved. This is especially important for asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic COVID-19 patients, who may not have been diagnosed with molecular testing. It can also help providers and health authorities understand the prevalence of COVID-19 in their area, and the change in prevalence over time.
For many pathogens, testing positive for antibodies after infection usually indicates some level of immunity from re-infection. However, whether antibodies to COVID-19 indicate a lower risk of infection is still unclear, and ongoing studies will further detail COVID-19 specific immunity.FDA-registered test for SARS-CoV-2-reactive antibodies.
