Baton Rouge General to offer COVID-19 antibody testing at select locations, beginning Wednesday
BATON ROUGE – Baton Rouge General is expanding its COVID-19 antibody testing to several of its clinic locations.
Antibody testing determines if a patient has developed antibodies against the novel coronavirus after being infected, even if they only experienced mild to no symptoms.
There are many different types of antibody tests available, but BRG is using the COR2G serology test developed by Mayo Clinic. After a small blood draw, the sample will be sent to the Mayo Clinic Laboratory to analyze for the presence of antibodies, which are specific proteins made in response to infections. A BRG provider will call with results within 48 hours.
Antibody testing is best for those who experienced symptoms of COVID-19. Antibodies develop between eight and 14 days after the onset of symptoms, so it’s best to wait the full 14 days to be tested for the most accurate result.
