Slow The Spread
Find out if you may have been infected by COVID-19.
The antibody test used by ARCpoint Labs (COVID-19 IgG/IgM) is a blood test that is designed to detect immune proteins called antibodies, which may indicate that your body has been exposed to COVID-19 (also known as coronavirus or SARS-CoV-2).
ARCpoint Labs uses a network of trusted third-party high complexity lab partners to conduct these antibody tests.MAKE AN APPOINTMENT COVID-19 FAQs
What is a COVID-19 antibody test?
This test is designed to detect the body’s immune response to the infections caused by the SARS-Co-V-2 virus.
NEGATIVE:The test did not detect the presence of antibodies.
POSITIVE:You have antibodies that likely resulted from a previous infection with SARS-CoV-2, or possibly a related coronavirus.
Should I be Tested?
If you believe you have been exposed to COVID-19 or have had symptoms in the past, you may be a good candidate for this test. You must be asymptomatic (free of symptoms) for at least seven (7) days prior to testing.

* Important Information
The antibody test is a serology test, which is designed to detect antibodies in a blood sample that would indicate that you may have been exposed to COVID-19. The test used by ARCpoint Labs has not been reviewed or approved by the FDA. ARCpoint Labs does the phlebotomy pull (or blood draw), then sends the sample off to a high-complexity lab for testing and review by a physician. We are providing these tests based upon the FDA’s Policy for Coronavirus Disease-2019 Tests During the Public Health Emergency.
Results from antibody testing should not be used as the sole basis to diagnose or exclude acute SARS-CoV-2 infection. Negative results do not preclude (or rule out) acute SARS-CoV-2 infection, particularly in those who have been in contact with the virus. If acute infection is suspected, direct testing for SARS-CoV-2 is necessary.
It is possible for this test to give a false negative result in some people with COVID-19 infection. A negative result may occur if you are tested early in your illness and your body hasn’t had time to produce antibodies to infection.
Positive results may be due to past or present infection with non-SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus strains, such as coronavirus HKU1, NL63, OC43, or 229E. If you have a positive test result, it is likely that you have or previously had COVID-19 and that you have developed an antibody response to the virus. There is also the chance that this test can give a false positive result.
Regardless of whether you test positive or negative for the antibodies, you should work with your healthcare provider to interpret your results, in consideration with other factors of your medical history, such as previous symptoms, possible exposure to COVID-19, geographical location of places you have recently traveled, etc.
