Is AFC Urgent Care West Chester offering COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) blood serology testing, also known as antibody testing?
Yes. The SARS-CoV-2 blood test we are offering is designed to detect IgG antibodies to the virus that causes COVID-19. This test helps to determine whether your blood has antibodies to the virus that causes COVID-19. Typically, a positive test result means it is likely you have had COVID-19 and that you have developed antibodies to the virus. A negative test result means that the antibodies to the virus that causes COVID-19 were not found.
We are typically getting test results back in two days.
The serology test we are offering is run by LabCorp, a large national laboratory, using technology developed by Abbott Laboratories. This test is available from LabCorp under the U.S. Food and Drug Administration Emergency Use Authorization.
Thank you. We are grateful for the trust you have shown us.
