The SARS-CoV-2 antibody testing being provided in CD 9 is one of the most reliable antibody tests available. It has a sensitivity of 100 percent and a specificity of 99.6 percent performance evaluations. A positive result indicates that an individual has been infected with the COVID-19 pathogen and has developed some level of immunity.
