SARS-COV-2 IgM (COVID-19 Immune Response)

SARS-COV-2 IgM serum antibody test can help identify ongoing or recent infection of COVID-19.

This test is well suited for the purpose of screening of healthcare workers and others on an ongoing basis. Employers can also use this test as a measure to help roll out and maintain workforce redeployment strategy.

IgM maybe found in the acute phase of infection, which corresponds to the contagious period of an infection, but the exact relationship between IgM positivity and contagiousness of SARS-COV-2 has not yet been firmly established.

A positive IgM test may suggest that a clinical action is needed for the individual, and that quarantine measures should be taken to prevent infection of others.
