All employees will need to fill out the COVID-19 questionnaire which requires basic patient information such as full name, date of birth, gender, email, phone and other important questions. After your account is finalized our team will send you the form for you to hand out to your employees. Please make sure to print all information so that it is easy to read. This will help reduce errors when our team inputs the data and when we send out the results.
- Detects past infection
Antibody testing, also known as serologic testing, is used to detect antibodies in a patient’s blood specimen (serum). Antibodies are produced by the immune system in response to an infection. The presence of antibodies indicates that an individual has been exposed to (infected with) that particular infectious agent.
These antibodies can be detected in some cases for years after the individual has recovered from the infection and will also be present if the patient was never even symptomatic. Serologic tests detect antibodies against infectious agents in serum and are a marker of an immune response to infection. IgG antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 develop approximately 8 to 11 days post-symptom onset (seroconversion) for the majority of patients.
Some individuals may develop antibodies after this time frame, while others, particularly those who are immunosuppressed, may never develop a detectable immune response. We are offering serology testing only as a means to detect antibodies to the virus, not to diagnose a recent or active infection. Symptomatic patients should be tested using PCR viral testing, not antibody serology testing.
- Detects active infection
Antigen tests look for pieces of proteins that make up the SARS- CoV-2 virus to determine if the person has an active infection. The antigen test may need confirmation with PCR.
- Detects an active infection
This test can aid in the detection of the virus that causes COVID-19 using a technique known as polymerase chain reaction (PCR). This test requires an upper respiratory nasal swab which is then tested using PCR looking for COVID-19 causative viral material, specifically the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus.
