Does PacMed offer Antibody Testing?
Not at this time. COVID-19 antibody tests were rapidly developed and are currently under review by the FDA and other federal organizations. The meaning of the results is not fully understood and may not provide the answers you are seeking. We do not recommend antibody testing at this time. We will continue to update recommendations in accordance with emerging evidence and expert guidance from the Centers Disease Control (CDC) and Infectious Diseases Society of America.
