COVID-19 | Serology Test

Teste Anticorpos
About
Test your blood antibodies
A possible response to the infection

A COVID-19 serology test detects human SARS-CoV-2 antibodies. This test determines whether a person has ever been infected with COVID-19, and therefore whether they may have a degree of potential immunity.

Serology testing is a great way to determine which members of a population (such as a workforce) have previously had COVID-19 infection, and therefore might have some immunity to reinfection.

All serology results must be reviewed and interpreted by a doctor.

Which antibodies are searched in this test and what’s the meaning of the result?

  • The IgG and IgA antibodies are directed to the S1 protein, specific for SARS-CoV2;
  • The IgM antibodies are directed to the "N" protein of the virus (less specific than the S1) and generally follow the appearance of IgG and IgA antibodies to SARS-CoV2;
  • Cross-reactivity with SARS1 group viruses may occur;

What is the utility of this test? 

They are suitable for large-scale screening, to identify people who may have had contact with the virus and developed immunity, even in the absence of any sign of illness.
