Antibody and Antibody Test

In a recovering organism, the body starts producing special protein molecules usually within 10 days after the onset of infection, resulting in virus concentration reduce and recede of symptoms; the special protein molecules are the antibodies, the level of which in the blood starts increasing when the recovering process has started. Nevertheless, even after a full recovery, they may remain positive for a long time. 

Unlike the COVID-19 test, a Coronavirus antibody test is developed to detect the presence of antibodies to coronavirus in the patient’s organism. The testing is an in-office procedure that includes our physician collecting samples via blood draw. 

Antibody Testing Procedure

First of all, the patient needs to consult with AllCare physician in-person or via telemedicine. Consultation is required, as the doctor has to make sure that the patient is fully recovered and has no any COVID-related symptoms or signs anymore – patients with such symptoms cannot be tested until full recovery. 

Antibody Results

Usually, we provide the SARS-COV-2 PCR results in one-three business days, as the average time taking for procedure and interpretation. Because the technology is quite a new one, the mentioned period may change. 

The results are sent via email, so please take care to provide us the right email of yours.
