COVID-19 Antibody Testing
At Susan A. Baker, MD, we are proud to offer medical testing orders for COVID-19 antigen testing. This type of test can help to determine whether you have previously had COVID-19 and now have antibodies to protect against the virus. It is important to note that this testing does not determine if you currently have COVID-19, but instead provides information about whether you had it in the past and fully recovered.
Why is COVID-19 Antigen Testing important?
As we navigate this evolving virus, antigen testing can be a valuable asset in our understanding and research of COVID-19. Results of accurate antibody testing can help provide a better scope of how many people have been affected by coronavirus, including those who never displayed symptoms. This information aids in contact tracing, research regarding immunity, and strategies to help keep our community healthy.
If you are currently in good health, please contact our office for more information to see if you are a candidate for testing. Candidates for this type of testing must be asymptomatic for 10 days prior to testing. Once you receive your medical provider testing order from us, you can take it to your nearest LabCorp or Quest facility for testing. We appreciate your assistance in helping us navigate COVID-19.
