Antibody Testing

Covid-19 antibody testing, also known as serology or immune response testing, accesses previous exposure to Covid-19 even if symptoms were never experienced.

Antibody testing, taken as a blood draw sample, is performed inside the clinic, by appointment only. We will reach out by phone with the results within 2-3 business days.

This testing is not used to determine or validate the effectiveness of a COVID-19 vaccine. Antibody testing is available only to patients who are not currently experiencing symptoms and have not experienced symptoms within 10 days. Tests do not detect current Covid-19 infections, as it can take 1–3 weeks for the body to make antibodies.
