What is a COVID-19 antibody blood test?

A common misconception is that a coronavirus diagnostic test and a COVID-19 antibody test are the same. While the former is a ‘swab’ type test, an antibody blood test determines whether you have had COVID-19 in the past and now have antibodies in blood fighting against it. Antibodies are protective proteins created by the immune system to fight against foreign objects like bacteria and viruses.

What does the complete COVID-19 antibody screening package include?

The complete COVID-19 antibody package are antibody screening tests that detect antibodies against coronavirus in your bloodstream. Antibodies in blood are protective proteins and are part of an immune response to fight against foreign substances like bacteria and viruses.

A phlebotomist will draw blood from your arm. The blood sample is collected and sent for analysing the presence of antibodies level count.

The complete COVID-19 antibody package consists of two tests:

  • COVID-19 IgG blood test: An IgG blood test indicates if you have developed IgG as an immune response against the virus. This antibody is seen in most patients between 1-3 weeks of infection and remains in the bloodstream post-recovery. However, the
    World Health Organisation states that there is a lack of evidence on how much protection these antibodies can provide against COVID-19 and for how long.
  • COVID-19 total antibodies test/ Ig blood test: The presence of IgM (immunoglobulin M) antibody indicates the onset of the virus. The presence of IgG (immunoglobulin G) antibody forms later and indicates the likelihood of past infection. Usually, in infectious diseases, the severity decreases when antibodies are produced. However, with COVID-19, the appearance of IgG and IgM antibodies can vary with time.

Thus, it is important to take an overall Ig blood test, rather than test for subtypes like IgG and IgM separately.

Why should you get a complete COVID-19 antibody screening test?

You should get a COVID-19 antibody blood test if:

  • You doubt that you might have come in contact with a COVID-19 positive person in the past
  • You have developed flu-like symptoms
  • You were recently infected with COVID-19 and want to understand your immune status

By doing so, experts will have a better understanding of how common the virus is and will be able to plan control of its spread better. For more information, contact a general physician to discuss if you need a COVID-19 diagnostic test or a COVID-19 total antibody screening test.

The eligibility of both tests will depend on test availability and your location.

What does the antibody blood test result mean?

Positive antibody test:

  • Positive antibody test:

A positive antibody blood test indicates that you may have had COVID-19 recently. This means that your body has registered an immune response to it in the form of antibodies in blood to provide long term immunity. However, the time period is still under speculation as researchers believe that the antibodies stay in the bloodstream for about 3-6 months. This protects the individual from getting re-infected by the novel coronavirus.

  • Negative antibody test:

A negative antibody blood test simply means that antibodies were not detected in your blood sample. Either your body has not come across the virus causing COVID-19, or you may have been exposed, but the immune response has not been developed yet. A negative antibody test does not mean you should stop following COVID-19 safety guidelines.

If you develop flu-like symptoms, make sure to isolate yourself and contact a general doctor on MFine to understand what test is suitable for you. If you are more concerned, contact the local board of health of Bengaluru to find the best treatment options suitable for your needs. Until then, continue maintaining safety protocols like social distancing and wearing a face mask.

It is crucial to note that no COVID-19 test is always accurate. It is possible to be infected and still test negative. Continue following COVID-19 guidelines of your district, such as, social distancing and wearing a face mask.
