Laboratory Based Antibody Test

Antibody Test

New lab-based SARS-CoV-2 antibody test identifies the presence of antibodies to the virus and gives both qualitative and quantitative results to provide a more detailed understanding  of antibody levels than previous tests.

KEY FEATURES & BENEFITS
  • Detects antibodies to the virus that causes COVID-19 to help identify persons previously infected who have an immune response.
  • May help persons vaccinated understand and monitor their immunity status.
  • Easy to order, uses a standard blood serum specimen.
  • Provides more accurate and quantitative result compared with point-of-care rapid test strips.
  • May allow persons to track their antibody levels over time.
  • EUA authorized for emergency use
SENTISTIVITY AND SPECIFICITY:

Sensitivity of 100% (for samples taken from patients at least 14 days after PCR confirmation of infection) and an overall specificity of 99.81% (over 5,000 samples tested)

 

No identified cross reactivity with samples containing antibodies to HIV, four other common cold coronaviruses, other pathogens, nor to 40 common cold samples.
