Testing Procedure

The coronavirus antibody test is a specially developed test, which aims at detecting the presence of antibodies to coronavirus in the patient’s organism. The actual testing is an in-office procedure that includes sampling via blood draw. 

If a patient considers himself/herself recovered from Coronavirus and decides to be tested for antibodies to Coronavirus, first, he/she needs to consult with our doctor so that the latter can find out whether there are any COVID-related symptoms or signs in his/her organism. Patients with COVID-related or similar symptoms cannot be tested for antibodies until full recovery. 

What are Antibodies?
