Antibodies are a key part of our immune defenses. They are created in white blood cells to identify and neutralize a cause unknown to the immune system. COVID-19 antibodies are proteins that occur as an immune response in infected patients or those who have been in contact with the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
By determining antibodies in the IgG, IgM, and IgA classes, past or current infections with SARS-CoV-2 can be demonstrated.
The infection can pass without symptoms or with very mild symptoms, which are considered insignificant. There is a qualitative and quantitative determination of IgG, IgM and IgA antibodies.
Synlab tests IgG, IgM and IgA classes of antibodies, antibodies are detected in the patient’s blood and for their detection, Synlab performs a safe and accurate examination, if the period of 1 to 4 weeks from infection or contact is respected.
