COVID Antibody Test – $79

This is used to tell if you have had COVID in the past and looks for the IgM and IgG antibodies. This is the cheapest and most comfortable test as it only requires 1 drop of blood from a tiny fingerprick that you can hardly feel. It can take several days or weeks for these antibodies to develop once you are infected so this is NOT the best test to use if you are trying to determine if you are actively infected. We recommend you use this test for your own personal reasons but not for submitting to your job or for travel

  • Not recommended for travel or return to work
