What are the benefits of this test?
1. It can confirm if you’ve produced antibodies against COVID-19.

Detecting IgG antibodies is the prime purpose
When to go for this test?
It is recommended to go for this test 30-45 days after your first vaccination is done as the test can help you understand if the antibodies of your body are responding enough to the vaccine or not. This test is hugely necessary for the purpose of monitoring the response of antibody vaccines.
A certain amount of blood sample is collected from the patient’s vein on which the test is performed.
No specific preparations are required to go for this test. However, you must have a brief consultation with the medical expert to know if any preparations are needed.
A positive test result indicates the presence of the neutralizing antibodies in your blood. Similarly, a negative test result indicates the absence of the antibodies.
