The current antibody testing landscape is varied and scientifically unverified, and these tests should not be used as the sole test for diagnostic or treatment decisions. Furthermore, the antibody response in infected patients remains largely unknown, and the clinical values of antibody testing have not been fully demonstrated. There is currently no universal standard for reporting antibody results and test detection limits are variable. Some assays provide semi-quantitative results and others are designed to be qualitative (i.e. antibody detected or not). Please refer to Mayo Laboratories website for specific information regarding this test.

Thank you!
