What Does This Test For?
The antibody test is an IgG test that looks for evidence of an immune response to the virus known as COVID-19. An antibody is not usually detectable until 10 days or more after the onset of symptoms. It is useful for detecting a previous presence of an inactive infection.
What is the Difference Between Antibody Testing & Rapid/PCR Testing
Rapid and PCR testing types will determine if a patient currently has the virus. The antibody test will determine if a patient has the presence of IgG antibodies, which may suggest that the patient has had the virus in the past.
