MACL SARS-CoV-2 IgG Assay Fact Sheet
Abbott Laboratories SARS-CoV-2 IgG Assay Fact Sheet for Healthcare Providers
MACL is now offering an immune-response blood test that detects IgG antibodies against SARS-SoV-2, which is the causative agent of COVID-19. Antibodies are produced by the immune system in response to an infection. The presence of antibodies indicates that you may have been exposed to the disease, even if you never experienced symptoms.
Previous exposure means you may now have some level of immunity to the virus. Understanding your immune response gives you and your doctor the information to assist in making an informed decision about returning to work or activity.
