Title: Need Both COVID-19 Antibody Test & Antigen Test for COVID-19? - Covid Clinic


1
Need Both COVID-19 Antibody and Antigen Tests?
2
Antibodies are produced by the body's defense
(immune) system. Antigens are particles that
trigger the production of antibodies in the body.
Antibody and antigen tests aid in the diagnosis
of some infections and other medical disorders.
3
How Are Antibody Tests Used?
Various antibodies can be detected and measured
in blood samples. The results of some antibody
tests can be 'diagnostic' for particular
illnesses. This means that, if you test positive
for a particular antibody, you have a certain
condition now. Unfortunately, it can also mean
that you might have had this illness in the past.
Sometimes a positive test means it is not
certain (but is much more likely) that you have a
particular illness. Antibody tests may be done
for various reasons.
4
What Is An Antigen Detection Test?
Some tests can identify the antigen on the
surface of some bacteria and some other germs.
These tests can be useful to detect an infecting
germ quickly without the need to grow (culture)
it or to see it under a microscope. Various other
antigen tests help to diagnose certain other
infections and conditions.
5
What Is The Difference Between Antigen
Antibody Tests?
-Antibodies are tiny proteins that circulate
throughout the body. Immunoglobulins are
proteins that are part of the body's defense
(immune) system. -Antibodies bind to proteins and
other molecules in the body that they perceive as
'foreign,' meaning they aren't ordinarily found
there. Antigens are the foreign proteins and
substances that antibodies bind to.
