These tests detect a patient’s past exposure to COVID-19. Antibodies remain in the blood for up to 6 months after infection. This test is useful for patients who want to check if they have had a previous asymptomatic infection, or where they may have had symptoms but were unable to get tested (this becomes less and less likely as we move through the pandemic). This test uses a finger prick of blood, much like a lipid profile test. Results take 10 minutes.
