Antibody for Covid 19

Covid Antibody Test checks your body’s response to COVID-19 infection. It is not a diagnostic test but is used for sero-surveillance to understand whether a person has encountered the infection in the recent past.

The highly accurate and efficient techniques for detection of COVID-19 antibodies!

Antibody test for SARS-CoV-2 identifies if a person has had the novel coronavirus at some point in the past and has produced the antibodies to fight it. Nucleic acid amplification by RT-PCR assay or antigen detection tests can detect the presence of virus indicating acute infections, whereas, antibody test determines if the individual was exposed to virus and now has developed antibodies against the virus.

Although, these tests do not play direct role in diagnosis, but have significant role in understanding the extent of community transmission of the disease.
