What is COVID Antibody total?
Antibodies are proteins of the immune system that help in fighting off infections. They are produced by the immune system when it encounters a pathogen. Antibodies help you fight off pathogens and can protect you from getting re-infected.
COVID Antibody total, a serology-based test, detects IgG and IgM antibodies in your blood which fight off the Coronavirus. The presence of IgM indicates a recent viral infection or vaccination. The presence of IgG determines the past infection or exposure to the virus.
