Covid-19 Neutralizing Antibody Test (DevNAb)
What is the Covid-19 Neutralizing Antibody Test?
Our patent pending Covid-19 Neutralizing Antibody Test (DevNAb) is a test that detects neutralizing antibodies from previous SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19) infection or vaccination. These antibodies bind to a specific section of the pathogen. The presence of these antibodies have been shown to lower the viral infection of cells from SARS-CoV-2 according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Similarly, some Covid-19 antibody tests refer to tests that detect the presence of antibodies that bind to the pathogen, but are not necessarily involved in the decrease of the infection. This is not the required test for travel purposes or to determine whether you are currently infected.
Who Should Take the Covid-19 Neutralizing Antibody Test?
Anyone interested in determining whether they have been not only exposed to the Covid-19 virus, but whether they have Covid-19 neutralizing antibodies which indicate a level of immunity to the Covid-19 virus. Alternatively, individuals who have had the Covid-19 vaccine may be interested to determine if Covid-19 neutralizing antibodies are present.
