April 30, 2020
This advisory provides guidance for the use of serology tests from commercial manufacturers and includes NY State Testing Protocol.
Serological tests for determining the presence of antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 are now available from commercial manufacturers. Serology tests are used to determine if antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 are present. Certain serology tests can look for the general presence of SARS-CoV-2 antibodies, while others can determine if specific types of SARS-CoV-2 antibodies, such as IgM and/or IgG, are present.
