Unlike many Covid-19 tests that only test for the IgG antibodies, our tests provide results for both IgG and IgM antibodies. Immunoglobulin M (IgM) is the body’s largest antibody. It is also the first antibody to appear in response to an initial exposure to an antigen (a toxin or other foreign substance), which induces an immune response in the body. IgM provides the first line of defense during viral infections, followed by the generation of adaptive, high affinity IgG responses for long-term immunity and immunological memory. Therefore, testing of COVID-19 IgM and IgG antibodies is an effective method for the rapid identification of a current or recent COVID-19 infection.
This options offers the best of both worlds to give the most comprehensive results that we offer by testing for both antigens and antibodies
The specimens is collected via a nasal swab or saliva (RT-PCR) and a simple blood draw (Antibody)
This combined test detects both a current active COVID-19 virus as well as any prior exposure to Covid-19.How quickly will I get my results?
Antibody test results will be immediately available (within 10 minutes). Results for the nasal or saliva RT-PCR test are available within 0 - 2 days of testing
