COVID-19 Antibody Testing
Kaleida Health Laboratories is now offering COVID-19 antibody testing to our community. The COVID-19 antibody test is obtained through a blood draw and seeks to detect antibodies that form after exposure to the coronavirus.
Positive antibody tests are important against the fight of COVID-19 as they are a key metric in the government's phased re-opening plan of New York State.
Anyone is eligible for COVID-19 antibody testing upon obtaining a prescription from your primary care provider.
Your results will be provided within 3-4 days, through the Patient Portal of the MyKaleida mobile app or your primary care doctor. If you have questions about your results, please contact your primary care doctor as a positive result does not guarantee immunity to the virus.
