Frequently Asked Questions
A COVID-19 antibody screening is not a diagnostic test to confirm if an individual has the virus, but rather a “screening” of blood serum to detect if COVID-19 antibodies are present in one’s system. If COVID-19 antibodies are found to be present, that’s confirmation the body has been infected by the virus and is now making antibodies to protect itself against the disease. COVID-19 antibody screenings are referred to as serological tests. While diagnostic tests to confirm whether one has the COVID-19 virus are referred to as polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests.

Antibodies are large proteins of the immune system that neutralize intruders such as bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites. There are five (5) types of antibodies: IgA, IgD, IgE, IgG and IgM
IgM (immunoglobulin M) is the first line of defense and is produced during early infection and are considered short-term fighters.
IgG (immunoglobulin G) appear on the scene later once the individual’s first line of defense can no longer fight off the intruder. The IgG antibodies are responsible for long-term protection against pathogens.

Qualified Concepts provides on or off-site screening at a safe public venue which can include the client’s company parking lot or some other safe screening site. Under the direction of a licensed clinician, Qualified Concepts’ screening includes a single use disposable kit to detect both IgG and IgM antibodies.
The screening, itself, takes seconds and involves a single finger prick (similar to diabetic testing to monitor one’s blood glucose levels). A positive screen for IgM antibodies confirms a person currently has the virus and is making IgM antibodies to fight against it.

Each person screened will receive results in about 10-15 minutes.
Following a positive screen for the IgM antibodies, a PCR test is recommended as well as further instructions from a physician. PCR tests are specifically designed to test for the presence of toxins such as CoVid-19. A physician will determine the best course of action for each individual.

Physicians and scientists across the country agree that screening can assist in predicting what the coming year will look like and whether it’s safe to ease many of the stay-at-home orders around the country. Screening also collects invaluable data to ensure that we are better prepared for future outbreaks.
There is no one solution to combat COVID-19; however, there are small things we can do as a community to ensure that we provide safe spaces for our neighbors, loved ones and colleagues. COVID-19 screening is a way to contribute to combating the devastation caused by the disease.
