What does the COVID-19 antibody result mean?

A positive result  means you have had COVID-19 in the past, although we cannot tell when. As this is a new virus it is not known if a positive results means you have immunity and you will be protected fully or partially from future infection, or how long the immunity will last. If you choose the quantitative test it will also tell you the level of your antibodies after infection or vaccination.

 

If you have a negative result this could mean you have not had the infection, had a mild infection or your body had not produced antibodies at the time of testing.

 

Who can have this test?

This test is suitable for anyone who want to find out if they could have been infected with the virus, either because they had symptoms or they are worried they may have had an asymptomatic infection. It can be used post COVID vaccination to see if you have produced a good antibody response to the vaccine.It can also be used by employers looking to bring their staff back to work and they want to see who has had the COVID-19 already.
