COVID-19 Antibody Test Interpretation
The COVID antibody test in Chennai is designed to detect antibodies that someone's body has developed if they have been exposed to the virus in the past. The test is highly recommended for asymptomatic and mildly symptomatic people who want to track their antibody levels so that they can be prepared.
It is also a critical test for anyone looking to verify whether they had the virus in the past. The SARS COV 2 antibody test results will also determine the presence of the antibodies to the virus through CMIA and CLIA testing.
Understanding CMIA and CLIA testing
Chemiluminescence Immunoassay Analyzer (CLIA) and Chemiluminescent Magnetic Microparticle Immunoassay (CMIA) are specialised testing protocols for the detection of the antibodies present in the system. When someone is exposed to the COVID virus, they can start to develop antibodies within the body.
These antibodies can be detected through the highly sensitive serological testing techniques, namely CLIA and CMIA. When you order an antibody Chennai test, your testing package will contain tests designed for CLIA and CMIA which can provide accurate results of your antibody status.
What does a positive result mean?
A positive result denotes the presence of the IgG antibodies in your system, indicating that you have been exposed to the virus in the past. Your body has developed antibodies as a response to the virus.
What does a negative result mean?
A negative result denotes that you may not have been exposed to the virus in the past or that your body may not have had sufficient time to develop detectable antibodies. You can take a repeat test after a week to check.
