As part of our ongoing commitment to outstanding patient care, AFC Urgent Care South Plainfield is pleased to offer patients COVID-19 serology (antibody) testing.
Antibody testing may help patients identify whether they were previously exposed to COVID-19; and, if exposed, such testing may help identify whether their immune systems have produced IgG antibodies. Such testing is covered by most health insurance plans.
Patients who have been asymptomatic (i.e., symptom-free) for at least seven days are eligible to receive COVID-19 antibody testing.
Antibody testing involves a simple nursing visit, during which a routine blood sample is taken and sent to an outside lab for processing. When we receive your lab results, our clinical staff will promptly email those results to you and call to inform you that the results have been transmitted. Patients are encouraged to consult with their primary care physicians regarding the interpretation of those results.
