Our tests are performed in our CLIA certified, COLA accredited laboratory in Dallas, TX.
Those that were previously sick and tested negative for other tests or speculate that they are asymptomatic carriers that came in contact with someone that was infected by the COVID -19 virus.
A total antibody test measures the presence of IgM and IgG antibodies found in the blood. These antibodies develop when we an individual is infected with a virus. The body first produces IgM antibodies as an initial line of defense to protect against infection. IgM then transfers to IgG to kill the virus and to protect against future infection.
This test is recommended for anyone that has symptoms for COVID-19 to determine if they have the virus or not. It is also recommended for anyone that has a positive total antibody result.
PCR testing is used to detect the presence of an “antigen,” rather than the presence of “antibodies” created by a person’s immune response to a virus. By identifying viral RNA, which is present before antibodies or symptoms begin to develop, PCR tests tell us whether or not someone has the virus very early on.We recommend that each antibody test be complimented with a molecular PCR test.
We offer one of the only tests available in the US recognized by the FDA under emergency use authorization for detecting antibodies against the virus that causes COVID-19. This test was developed by Ortho-Clinical Diagnostics.
