With 80% of the population having little or no symptoms of COVID-19, it is critically important to know if a patient’s immune system have been exposed to SARS-CoV-2.
IgG (Immunoglobulin G) is the most common type of antibody found in all bodily fluids. IgG is produced in response to an antigen and will be maintained in the body after initial exposure for long term response.
IgM (Immunoglobulin M) is the body’s first line of defense against infection. IgM is first to be produced in response to an antigen and will be primarily detectable during the early onset of the disease.
Physicians can now order our antibody test for their patients.
Not available in MD, NJ, NY, and RI, due to state restrictions.

Here are just a few of the things people ask us often.
What is the Antibody19 test?
The Antibody19 test is s serology (blood) that can detect a past infection with Coronavirus via the detection of antibodies (IgG and IgM), meaning, we test an individual’s immune status to COVID19
What is IgG and IgM?
IgG and IgM are types of antibodies that tbody produces to fight off infections caused by antigens such as bacteria, fungi and viruses.
IgM (Immunoglobulin M) can be found mainly in blood and lymph fluid and is the first antibody produced in response to an initial exposure to a pathogen. IgM level will rise for a short time, It will then begin to drop as IgG antibody levels rise.
IgG (Immunoglobulin G) is the most common type of antibody found in all bodily fluids. IgG test results can indicate whether someone has been exposed to and possibly developed immunity to a specific pathogen

How long does it take to get the blood test results?
Depending on the volume of tests, we aim for the results to be available within 24- 72 hours.
What is the research on antibodies and COVID-19?
