FAQ’s

What are Coronaviruses?
Coronaviruses are a family of enveloped, RNA viruses which got the name “corona” because of the crown like spikes on their outer surface. Coronaviruses are pathogens for many animal species and humans. The human coronaviruses were first identified in the 1960s. Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS), Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and COVID-19 are disease outbreaks caused by different type of coronaviruses.
What is SARS-CoV-2 virus?
SARS-CoV-2 stands for “severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2” and is a part of the coronavirus family. SARS- CoV-2 is the virus responsible for a world-wide pandemic that emerged in China in December, 2019.
What is SARS-CoV-2 IgG Test?
This test will analyze whether you have been exposed to SARS-CoV-2 virus by checking the levels of IgG antibodies.

The body’s immune system produces proteins called antibodies which act as warriors and bind to the infectious agent such as bacteria, virus etc., called an antigen. In case of recent exposure, your immune system would have mounted a response and produced these antibodies. Once the antibodies bind to the antigens, they trigger further chemical reactions in the body to neutralize the antigens. Immunoglobulin M (IgM) and Immunoglobulin G (IgG) are two classes of these antibodies. CoVID-19 specific IgM antibodies can be reliably detected up to two weeks after onset of symptoms, after their levels start to decrease after that. IgG, on the other hand are formed after about 10-14 days and remain detectable for a much longer duration. There is substantial evidence that presence of COVID-19 specific IgM&IgG provides short-term (3-6 months) immunity to reinfection, atleast for majority of the population.

What are the symptoms of COVID-19?
If you have been infected, symptoms may appear within two weeks of exposure, or you may remain asymptomatic and continue to pass on the infection to others. Majority of the people display only mild to moderate symptoms and respiratory distress and do not need hospitalization.
When should you take this test?

For most accurate results, IgG antibody testing is recommended after10-14 days of symptom onset to allow for the development of antibodies. You can also get yourself tested if you were potentially exposed to COVID-19 but did not develop symptoms.
It is also a good tool to identify donor candidates for convalescent plasma therapy.
