Negative COVID-19 Antibody Test - FAQs

Explain My Results

What does a negative antibody test mean?

A negative result means that you do not have the COVID-19 antibodies that your body produces to protect against future infections. This very likely means that you have not been infected with COVID-19. Be aware that it can take several days for antibodies to form.

How accurate is this test?

Tests are measured commonly by the following two accuracy metrics: sensitivity and specificity. This very accurate test has a sensitivity of 100% and a specificity of 99.63%, meaning that your negative result is highly accurate.

I got both the viral swab test and the antibody blood draw. Will my swab test be negative as well?

Not necessarily, as mentioned above, it can take several days for antibodies to form after an active infection begins.
