COVID-19 Antibody Test (Coronavirus)

COVID Anti-Ab Test Landing Page

The COVID-19 antibody tests provide qualitative detection of IgM and IgG antibodies against SARS- CoV-2 in individuals suspected of COVID-19. After infection with COVID-19 the virus antigen stimulates the immune system to produce antibodies that can be detected in the blood.

Among these antibodies, IgM antibodies appear early and are mostly positive after 3-5 days of infection. After 7 days IgG antibodies increase four times or more than that of IgM.
