Test Name: UBI® SARS-CoV-2 ELISA
When a person is infected by a virus, that person’s immune system produces antibodies specific to that virus to fight infection. A COVID-19 antibody test, using a small sample of blood, is able to detect the antibodies made by the body against the SARS-CoV-2 virus (the virus that causes the coronavirus disease), to diagnosis whether a person has (or previously had) COVID-19.
Features of our antibody test:
- Accurate — testing to date has resulted in 100% specificity and sensitivity
- Precise — can differentiate between SARS-CoV-2 vs. other coronaviruses circulating
- Fast — results in 2 hours
- Scalable — can be deployed to screen hundreds of millions of subjects easily
The results of the test tell you whether you have been exposed to the virus. Antibodies may be detected starting 8 to 10 days after infection, or generally shortly after onset of symptoms. The antibodies stay in your blood for a long time and, thus, the detection of antibodies using our test can also inform whether you have been previously exposed to the virus and have now recovered and developed immunity.
