This test is detects antibodies towards the COVID-19 virus. This test does not detect the presence of the coronavirus itself. It shows whether the immune system has created antibodies to fight it.
We are measuring the IgG antibody towards the virus which appears about 14 days after the patient is exposed to the virus and then lasts multiple months afterwards (please see figure).
Combining our PCR blood test with this antibody test will enable health care workers to detect who currently has the virus and those that were exposed previously.
Serum test: Serum from venous blood draw in red top tub. Sample volume is 0.5 mL. Ship at room temperature.
Can I order this test for family members?

What does a positive coronavirus antibody test result mean for someone in terms of immunity?
The short answer is we don’t know.
It may mean someone has full immunity or partial immunity or no immunity at all. Some antibodies decrease over time, so you might be immune for six months to a year, and then maybe not at all later on. Or, it might be like a tetanus immunization, where if you get it once, you’re most likely immune the rest of your life. There’s just no way to give definitive answers right now.
This test has not been reviewed by the FDA. Negative results do not rule out SARS-CoV-2 infection, particularly in those who have been in contact with the virus. Follow-up testing with a molecular diagnostic should be considered to rule out infection in these individuals.
Results from antibody testing should not be used as the sole basis to diagnose or exclude SARS-CoV-2 infection or to inform infection status.
Positive results may be due to past or present infection with non-SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus strains, such as coronavirus HKU1, NL63, OC43, or 229E.
This test was developed and its performance characteristics determined by Realtime lab. It has not been cleared or approved by the Food and Drug Administration.
