The COVID-19 IgG Antibody test determines the presence of IgG antibodies developed by your body in response to COVID-19 infection. On the basis of the presence or absence of antibodies, it is determined if a person has had a previous infection with the SARS-CoV-2 virus or not. The antibody test is also sometimes referred to as a serology test. Therefore, you must remember that the antibody test does not check for the virus itself but actually detects the response of your immune system against the infection.
A COVID-19 IgG antibody test is conducted to know if you have been infected by the virus in the past or have it currently. The test is generally recommended if you have symptoms of the infection or if you have been in contact with someone who has been tested positive for the same. Not everyone who is infected with the virus gets the symptoms, therefore, the test will help you to know if you are infected, so that you can take necessary measures to manage it. The test results also help health experts to monitor the spread of the virus.
There are various symptoms of COVID-19 that can lead you to an antibody test. The major symptoms of COVID-19 are:
The covid antibody test is a blood test, instead of a swab test. The blood from the vein of your arm is collected in a safe vial. An antiseptic is applied before the collection of a sample to prevent any contamination or infection. The sample is then processed in the laboratory to detect if there is the presence of COVID-19 IgG antibody in the sample or not
Interpreting the results of the COVID-19 IgG antibody test is very easy. If the result states positive, that means you have been infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus, whereas, if the result states negative, that means you have not been infected with the virus currently. Sometimes, the antibody test can have false negative values, that is, you might be infected with the virus, but the report still says negative. This is because antibodies take around 2 weeks to develop against any infection. Therefore, if you get your test done early, then you might get a false negative report. The results in an antibody test are based on the value of binding antibody units (BAU) per mL. If this value is less than 17.8 BAU/mL, then the result is negative, otherwise, it is positive.
