SARS-CoV-2 is the new coronavirus that causes COVID-19. Genalyte’s SARS-CoV-2 Serology Panel detects antibodies specific to SARS-CoV-2 antigens. Antibodies are proteins made by your body to attack foreign substances, like viruses or bacteria. The process of developing antibodies is termed an immune response. If you have been exposed to SARS-CoV-2, your body may produce antibodies to the virus. This test is designed to detect the overall presence (positive) or absence (negative) of SARS-CoV-2 antibodies, which may indicate that you have been infected with SARS-CoV-2 sometime in the past.
