Positive COVID-19 Antibody Tests Don't Mean You're Immune
You may have questions about antibody testing for COVID-19...now that point-of-care fingerstick tests are entering the scene.
Antibody tests aim to identify a RECENT or PRIOR infection with COVID-19. They're different than the COVID-19 diagnostic tests...which use a respiratory sample to identify an ACTIVE infection.
The Assure/FaStep COVID-19 IgG/IgM antibody test is the first authorized for use under a CLIA waiver...so it can be done in clinics or outpatient pharmacies without sending a sample to a lab.
