Serology Antibody Testing

North Memorial Health offers a new blood test – the serology antibody test – that can identify if you have been exposed to COVID-19 and have the antibodies against the virus. The antibody test, which is done through a simple blood draw, cannot be used to diagnose if you currently have the virus. But, if you’re concerned about previous exposure to COVID-19, this test can provide you with that answer.

The serology antibody test cannot be used to confirm immunity to COVID-19 and a positive test does not mean you cannot get COVID-19 again. However, if you test negative for antibodies, it’s unlikely that you have had a previous COVID-19 infection. Serology antibody tests are available for adults ages 18 and older.
