WHAT IS AN ANTIBODY TEST?
Antibody tests, or serology tests, rather than looking for the virus itself, detect antibodies or proteins in the blood that our bodies develop in order to fight it off. “These tests tell you that you’ve been exposed to the virus”, “Antibody tests can basically give us a history of the infection.”
WHAT EXACTLY ARE THESE ANTIBODIES THAT WE’RE TESTING FOR?
An antibody is a bespoke weapon that our bodies develop to fight off a pathogen. Our bodies may make several types of antibodies uniquely engineered to fight off the coronavirus over the course of one or two weeks. “Think about those pictures of the coronavirus you’ve mostly commonly seen,” That’s the part of the virus particle that attaches to healthy cells to invade and infect them.”
