What is antibody testing?
Antibody tests - or serology tests - look to detect antibodies in the blood that our bodies develop after being exposed to the virus to fight off the virus. These antibodies help the immune system respond faster and more effectively than it did the first time and may prevent a COVID-19 infection.
