Now Serving Communities Nationwide Through Our Provider Network SpectraCell is proud to partner with providers to bring access to COVID-19 antibody testing nationwide in an effort to increase test capacity in response to this public health crisis. Currently not offered to our clients internationally, including Hawaii, Alaska, and Puerto Rico. What you need to know about SpectraCell's COVID-19 Serology Antibody Test This test is designed to detect antibodies (called IgM and IgG) in the blood that are present when a person has been exposed to a virus in the past and built an immune defense against it. PATIENT ELIGIBILITY HOW TO ORDER Specimen Information Should my patient be tested? If your patient believes they have been exposed to COVID-19 or have exhibited symptoms in the past, they are a candidate for this test. If a patient tested positive for an active infection (via nasal or throat swab), we generally recommend waiting 3 weeks after exposure to test for antibodies. They must be symptom-free for at least 7 days prior to testing. Pricing No insurance will be accepted for the COVID-19 Antibody Test. Pricing available within the Provider Gateway.
