What is the SARS-CoV-2 IgG Antibody Test?
The SARS-CoV-2 IgG Antibody Test is a test used to confirm the antibodies produced against COVID-19 by our immunity system, which is typically caused by an infection with the virus.
The antibodies work to combat the virus, and testing positive for these antibodies may help confirm a coronavirus diagnosis in some cases.
What can the SARS-CoV-2 IgG Antibody Test tell us?
The antibody test is particularly useful in helping identify and limit the spread of COVID-19. This is done through the following:
- Confirming a coronavirus diagnosis for patients who suspect they have the virus but tested negative on a standard PCR test.
- Finding out if a patient has contracted COVID-19 in the recent past, but have immunity to the infection. This can help offer a peace of mind to employees returning to work or are working away from home.
- Screening for people who may have been infected before, but may have unknowingly recovered.
