COVID-19 IgG Antibody test in Mumbai

What is a COVID-19 IgG Antibody test?

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.

Why is a COVID-19 IgG Antibody test conducted?

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. 

What are the symptoms that can lead you to a COVID-19 IgG antibody test?

There are various symptoms of COVID-19 that can lead you to an antibody test. The major symptoms of COVID-19 are:

  • Cough
  • Fever
  • Tiredness
  • Sore throat
  • Loss of taste or smell
  • Muscle aches and pain
  • Headache
  • Diarrhoea
  • Skin rashes
  • Irritated or red eyes
  • Discoloration of fingers or toes
  • Chest pain
  • Difficulty in breathing
  • Loss of speech or mobility
  • Confusion
  • Shortness of breath

How is the COVID-19 IgG antibody test done?

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

How can I interpret the results of my COVID-IgG antibody test?

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.

What does the COVID antibody test cost in Mumbai?

The COVID-19 IgG antibody test in Mumbai is quite affordable. The COVID antibody test cost at Redcliffe Labs is approximately Rs 1598/- which under special discounts is currently available at Rs 799/- only.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does the term 'sensitivity' mean in an IgG antibody test?
The sensitivity of a test is its ability to identify the presence of antibodies of SARS-CoV-2 infection. The tests which are highly sensitive will be able to detect maximum people that have the antibodies for the virus.
    What does the term 'specificity' mean in an IgG antibody test?
    The term specificity in an antibody test refers to the ability of the test to identify samples that do not have the antibodies in response to SARS-CoV-2 infection. A test that is highly specific will give fewer false-positive results.
      What are the tests other than antibody tests that can be conducted for COVID-19 infection?
      Other than the COVID-19 IgG antibody test in Mumbai, a molecular RT-PCR test or antigen test can also be conducted for COVID-19 infection. A molecular RT-PCR test detects the genetic material of the virus in the sample, whereas an antigen test detects the specific proteins that are present on the surface of the virus in the blood sample.
        What is the major difference between an antibody test and a general coronavirus test?
        A coronavirus test is a diagnostic test that detects the presence of an active virus in the sample whereas an antibody test detects the presence of antibodies that are generated by your immune system in response to the COVID-19 infection. A coronavirus test will only tell you if you have a virus infection at that point in time or not, whereas an antibody test will tell you if you have had a virus infection anytime in the past or might still have it.
          Who is more prone to virus infection and must get the antibody test done on a priority basis?
          People who come in close contact with Covid-19 positive patients are at a higher risk of getting the infection and therefore should get their Covid-19 test done on a priority basis. These people include immunocompromised people or the ones living in containment zone, healthcare workers, security personnel like police, civil defense people and social volunteers, press corps, rural and tribal population, industrial workers, labour force, farmers, vendors, drivers, staff in municipal bodies, banks, courier offices, telecom offices, shops, staff at the airport and international operations.
            What is Covid Antibody IgG Quantitative?
            Covid Antibody IgG Quantitative test evaluates the presence and quantifies the particular amount of antibodies of COVID-19 infection.
              What is the difference between Covid-19 Antibody IgG Quantitative and Covid-19 Antibody IgG Qualitative?
              Covid-19 Antibody IgG (Qualitative) detects the presence of particular IgG antibodies against COVID- 19. The body makes antibodies when one gets an infection and the antibodies help fight against the infection. Patients with COVID-19 antibodies in the blood are likely to have had the infection or had been exposed to the disease before. Covid Antibody IgG Quantitative test however evaluates the presence and quantifies the particular amount of antibodies of COVID-19 infection
