This test checks for antibodies to COVID-19. If you’ve been exposed to COVID-19 or have received the Covid vaccine your body produces antibodies as part of the immune response to the virus and vaccine. This test cannot tell you if you have an active infection.
If Nucleocapsid antibody also wanted please use the 'add extra tests' function (C-D) -Covid Nucleocapsid IgG ab.
If you suspect you have COVID-19, follow up with your healthcare provider about getting a PCR Swab test. There are multiple free outlets for this service. Google Covid 19 testing or speak to your GP.
Having antibodies usually gives immunity from further infection. However, there is not enough evidence at this time to suggest that people who have these antibodies are protected against future COVID-19 infection
Based on the most current research, antibodies develop around 3 to 5 weeks after infection from COVID-19 or vaccination. However, this varies by individual, and some people may take a longer time to develop antibodies.
The results supplied by Australian Labs are positive or negative. A numeric range is not given. There is currently not enough data to indicate whether or not a higher number of antibodies indicates a stronger immune response or greater immunity.
Having an antibody test too soon after being infected may cause a false-negative result. Also some people who are infected with COVID-19 may not develop detectable levels of antibodies, such as those with weakened immune systems due to a medical condition or certain medications.
This test may also detect IgG antibodies from previous exposure to Coronaviruses other than COVID-19, which can cause a false-positive result.
Certain infectious diseases are notifiable to the Health Dept by the Laboratories. Covid is a notifiable disease.
