Anticipate Many Patients Wanting an Antibody Test for COVID-19

Pharmacies will start to offer antibody testing for COVID-19...now that point-of-care fingerstick tests are entering the scene.

Antibody, or serology, tests aim to identify a RECENT or PRIOR infection with COVID-19. They're different than the COVID-19 diagnostic tests...which use a respiratory sample to identify an ACTIVE infection.

The Assure/FaStep COVID-19 IgG/IgM antibody test is the first authorized for use under a CLIA waiver...so it can be done in pharmacies without sending a sample to a lab.
