The Roche Quantitative Antibody test for COVID-19 targets antibodies against the spike protein, determining antibody levels with a 98% sensitivity rate.
The result will confirm the current COVID-19 antibody levels in the following groups:
- Those with a known or unknown prior infection.
- Those who have recently received the COVID-19 vaccine.
Determining antibody levels could potentially prevent re-infection and the future spread of COVID-19.
The test is performed by taking a blood serum sample at one of our Cure Urgent Care locations. The sample is then sent out to the laboratory we contract with to be analyzed.
The serum blood draw test provided at Cure Urgent Care is 98% accurate.
Anyone is eligible for the antibody test. There is no need to have had prior COVID-19 testing, confirmed symptoms, or a vaccine. Although the quantitative test is most helpful in determining antibody levels post infection or vaccination.
It could take up to 4 weeks after known infection or a vaccination for antibodies to develop. For those who have had no symptoms, conclusive timing for accurate results cannot be determined. Note – the 4 week benchmark applies to post the 2nd vaccine, if applicable.
Please allow for up to 3 business days for results.
Patients will receive results via the CURE patient portal – activation is required in order to be tested. To register in the Cure Urgent Care patient portal, please CLICK HERE.
Activation on the CURE patient portal is mandatory in order to receive your results.
Patients should consult their insurance provider for the latest COVID testing policies.
Cure Urgent Care offers a complete visit for antibody testing for a flat $150 for uninsured patients, which is payable at the time of your visit. You will be billed an additional $55 directly from the lab used to process your COVID antibody blood test. Note – lab charge IS NOT collected from CURE at the time of your visit.
Antibody testing is available at any of our open locations by walk-in only during normal business hours.
DISCLAIMER: Proof of antibodies is only one part of determining quarantine limitations. The CDC has no official policy regarding proof of antibodies and what that means for stay at home orders. Patients should follow the instruction of their State agencies and the CDC once released.
