When sick with COVID-19, people produce two antibodies. Antibody test kits offer a level of information that helps understand the Coronavirus progression in patients. Individuals that have contracted COVID-19, the disease caused by the Coronavirus, will produce two different antibodies at different times.

You may be hearing a lot about antibody tests and what they mean. We have some information that we think you will find helpful.

  • The IgM antibody* is produced in the blood within days of an individual contracting COVID-19. This antibody helps identify the patient's stage of the disease.
  • The IgG antibody *is produced in the blood once a patient begins to recover. The IgG antibody help to identify that a patient is either in remission or had previously contracted COVID-19.

IMPORTANT: *Like most tests, an antibody test by itself may not indicate the presence of the Coronavirus. Antibody testing should be used in conjunction with other information and other testing protocols.
