StageZero COVID-19 Antibody Testing
StageZero Life Sciences COVID-19 Testing Program offers The COVID-19 IgG/IgM Antibody Test from BTNX + a Reflex test to The Access SARS-CoV-2 IgG Antibody Test from Beckman Coulter to confirm positive results.Based on recommendations from the FDA(1), StageZero Life Sciences offers a confirmatory testing approach for detecting true positive cases of SARS-CoV-2 antibodies.
- First, a blood test is run to detect SARS-CoV-2 antibodies.
- If the test is negative, a negative result is reported, with 99% certainty.
- If the test is positive, a confirmatory test is run to confirm that antibodies are truly present with 99% certainty.
Disclaimer: Available in U.S. to healthcare professionals under FDA's emergency guidance policy. This test has not been reviewed by the FDA.Negative results do not rule out SARS-CoV-2 infection, particularly in those who have been in contact with the virus. Follow-up testing with a molecular diagnostic should be considered to rule out infection in these individuals. Results from antibody testing should not be used as the sole basis to diagnose or exclude SARS-CoV-2 infection or to inform infection status. Positive results may be due to past or present infection with non-SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus strains, such as coronavirus HKU1, NL63, OC43, or 229E.
