More Information: Testing is paramount to controlling the spread of COVID-19.This rapid antibody test will help detect current active cases in this community as well as give individuals information whether or not they have previously contracted SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19).
CTS collects a whole blood sample for its rapid antibody testing with lateral flow test kits which test for the presence of both IgM and IgG antibodies to the SARS-CoV2-virus. CTS uses an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA), through FDA, testing kit which ensures the most reliable and accurate results possible in 15 minutes.
Once you are registered and have scheduled your time, CTS will send notices about your testing appointment and what to expect.
When you receive your test results via SMS/ text, there are five different types of results someone can receive from antibody testing. CTS will provide a full description of each of these result types upon arrival.
