Neutralizing SEROLOGICAL TEST (IgG)about the test
Blood test that allows to assess the level of antibodies, through a quantitative chemiluminescence immunoassay. SARS-CoV-2 infection causes our body to respond with the production of different types of antibodies such as neutralizing IgG.
IgG - appears about 10 to 15 days after infection, is responsible for the long-term response of our organism and will remain for several weeks, indicating possible immunity. When these antibodies have a neutralizing function, they mean that they have the ability to block the connection between the virus and human cells, thereby preventing the development of infection.
The test is performed by taking a blood sample.
Results from 24h to 48h.
Tests performed by qualified health professionals in any of our mobile units. See the different locations here.
who is it for
It is recommended to anyone who wants to check the level of immunity, either after vaccination or after infection by SARS-CoV-2.
It is recommended that the test be performed 17 days after taking the various doses of vaccine.
It is not recommended for the diagnosis of SARS-Cov-2 infection.

how to schedule a test

To schedule a test in one of our mobile units, you must follow these steps:
• Select the test you wish to perform
• Choose the most convenient location
• Define the desired time
• Fill in your personal data
• Confirm the schedule and wait for a confirmation email.
In case you need to reschedule or cancel the appointment, you can do so via the confirmation email.
The serological test is not intended to assess acute disease, nor to determine the danger of infectiousness.
Positive result for neutralizing IgG identifies previous infection or vaccination with possible development of immunity.
These tests are important for tracking and monitoring immunity over time as current scientific evidence does not yet allow us to state that a high level of anti SARS-CoV-2 antibodies does not guarantee effective or lasting immunity.
