Antibody Testing

Playing an Important Role in COVID-19
Public Health and Back-to-Work Surveillance Programs

For COVID-19, antibody testing is an important complement to viral testing. Active infections are diagnosed using nucleic acid tests that detect viral particles in samples from the respiratory tract or saliva. Antibodies, which are detected in the blood, provide confirmation of prior infection and may indicate a level of immunity to re-infection.

Antibody tests are needed to track the overall rate of increase of COVID-19 cases since viral tests only identify active infections. This includes identifying asymptomatic cases and potential transmission paths. Antibody tests can also help confirm cases that were missed by viral testing.

Antibody testing is an essential element to COVID-19 programs that seek to comprehensively protect the health of an organization’s members.
