How accurate is the test?
The accuracy of a lab test is measured in "sensitivity" and "specificity". Sensitivity is the test's ability to correctly identify those with antibodies (true positives) and specificity is the test's ability to identify those without the antibodies (true negatives). According to independent studies from Abbott Labs, Quest Diagnostics and the University of Washington, this test has a sensitivity of 100% and a specificity of 99.6% making it the most accurate COVID-19 antibody test currently available.
How do I get my results?
We will call you when your results are ready. You will also receive an email notification with instructions to access our HIPAA-compliant secure messaging portal to obtain a copy of your results.
How soon do I get my results?

Is this test done through a swab or blood collection?
