What Does Antibody Testing Tell Us?


When your body fights a bacterial or viral infection, like COVID-19, it produces antibodies. When you get sick, your body mounts what’s known as an immune response. This is when antibodies are created. Each type of antibody your immune system produces is unique and fights one specific type of harmful invader. Know Your Antibody Types

IgM – These are produced early in the illness, often within one to two weeks after getting infected, then fade after a couple of weeks. IgG – These are produced around two to four weeks later, and last for a long time, sometimes for years afterwards. An antibody test detects the body’s immune response to the infection caused by the virus rather than detecting the virus itself.
