COVID-19 IgG Antibody Test
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.
When to test
SARS-CoV-2 antibody tests are recommended to be used on patients with at least 3 days after onset of symptoms or 7-10 days after infection with the virus 2-4.
Fever, Dry Cough, Shortness of Breath, Diarrhea, Loss of Taste and Smell
A sample of your blood will be drawn and sent to a laboratory for further examination.
