Now Offering COVID-19 Antibody Testing With FDA EUA (Emergency Use Authorization)

COVID-19 antibody testing is used to detect the presence of antibodies that were produced by the immune system in response to a past COVID-19 infection. Specifically, this blood test screens for antibodies related to SARS-CoV-2, the novel coronavirus responsible for COVID-19. It does not diagnose active infections. If you’d like to receive an antibody test, we recommend waiting a few weeks after symptoms have resolved to allow antibodies to build up in the bloodstream.
