About Infectolab Americas COVID-19 test

Infectolab Americas has validated a novel serology test for COVID-19. The United States still faces a testing crisis. Our lab is ready to help by providing fast, accurate testing for COVID-19 patients. Serology testing for COVID-19 plays an important part of managing the current crisis. 

SARS-CoV-2 can be hard to detect,  but detecting for the presence of IgA and IgG Antibodies against the COVID-19 Antigen, can help. The testing can be used with patients who meet current guidance by CDC for evaluation of infection with COVID-19. 

Studies with COVID-19 serology show that some cases can be detected as early as 5 days after symptoms appear; however, it is important to note that serology requires antigen exposure and antibody formation. With each day that passes, the chances of detection via serology increases. On Day 10 (after symptoms first became present), the immune response was detected in almost all patients.

Why do we test IgA instead of IgM?

IgA is the antibody that is produced in viral infections which infect the human body through mucosal surfaces, it is the relevant subclass for these types of infections. - IgA is seen in respiratory diseases in high titers and provides immunity at mucosal sites.
