COVID-19 Total Antibody
(IgM & IgG) Tests
The GENETWORx COVID-19 Total Antibody (IgM & IgG) assay is a blood test that is performed to determine if a patient has been exposed/infected with the COVID-19 virus.
The COVID-19 Antibody Test checks to see if a patient’s immune system has responded to the infection. It is not for diagnosing an active COVID-19 infection. The GENETWORx Assay test is most specific and sensitive when it is performed at least 14 days after infection from COVID-19. However, if someone does not have symptoms but suspects they may have been infected, this test can be conducted at any point.
The presence of antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 indicates that the patient, whether the person experienced symptoms or not, had an immune response to the virus. GENETWORx’s Total Antibody tests detect both IgG and IgM in the blood to provide a clearer disease-state picture. When it comes to early detection of an immune response, our assays are much more sensitive – 99.8% specific and 100% sensitive to be exact.

COVID-19 Diagnostic Testing FAQs
Physicians, hospitals, and any other United States healthcare provider can order GENETWORx’s 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) test. Our tests are available for any patients who meet current guidance for evaluation of COVID-19 infection. Our nasopharyngeal tests feature 99% specificity and sensitivity to detect the presence of SAR-CoV-2, the virus responsible for COVID-19. Our saliva tests yield greater than 98% accuracy.
GENETWORx Laboratory provides both a nasopharyngeal test and a saliva test. Both of these tests are extremely accurate: the nasopharyngeal test has a 99% sensitivity and specificity, and the saliva test yields an accuracy greater than 98%. Both of these tests are available to order today.
Call 610-726-1205 and a GENETWORx representative will set you up in GENETWORx’s portal and send the kits to your facility. Within 72 hours, your facility will be set up in our portal and your test kits will arrive.
After a physician contacts GENETWORx, we will send either the nasopharyngeal or saliva testing kits to your facility. The nasopharyngeal kit will include a swab and the universal transport media in a vial to ensure RNA and DNA survival. The saliva kit will include a specimen collection funnel, tube, and universal transport media and a cap for the tube. Once the swab is taken by a healthcare provider (for nasopharyngeal) or is self-administered (for saliva), the vial and test order with the physician’s signature are placed in an individual bag, which is then placed into a larger bag. This is sent via FEDEX to our laboratory, where it will be tested, and results will be sent through the GENETWORx portal in less than 72 hours.
GENETWORX’s nasopharyngeal swab collection is collected using a synthetic nasopharyngeal swab and placed in a viral transport medium to be accepted for testing. Only one sample type per patient will be accepted. Appropriately sized swabs with synthetic tips can be used with the exception of calcium alginate tips, swabs with preservatives, and swabs with wood shafts. Viral transport media that is acceptable for the collection of influenza specimens can be used to transport swabs for COVID-19 testing.
GENETWORX’s saliva specimen is gathered by the individual collecting their saliva into the funnel until the amount of liquid saliva reaches the fill-to line. Only one sample type per patient will be accepted.
Once GENETWORX’s receives the provided sample, it will be tested and the result – whether it’s positive or negative – will be sent confidentially via our portal within less than 72 hours. You will receive instructions on how to set up the portal upon initial receipt of the COVID-19 test. Patients can also access their results directly from GENETWORx via phone, text or the patient portal.
In order to get quick, accurate results to patients, the following samples cannot be accepted for nasopharyngeal testing:
- Any swabs with calcium alginate, cotton tips, or wooden shafts
- Samples that have been refrigerated for more than 72 hours
- Samples that have been kept at room temperature for more than 24 hours
- Samples that are improperly labeled
- Samples that are contaminated
- Broken or leaking transport devices
For saliva tests, please note:
- You CANNOT eat, drink, smoke, or chew gum 30 minutes before providing your sample
- Do not remove the plastic film from the funnel lid

COVID-19 Antibody Testing FAQs
A venipuncture is performed to collect blood from the patient. Serum or plasma will be tested to determine if the patient has antibodies against COVID-19. Blood draws need to be performed by health care providers or at labs.
Anyone can have a COVID-19 Antibody test; however, the test is a blood test that must be performed by a physician. GENETWORx proudly supplies tests for healthcare providers, state and local governments, colleges and universities, nursing homes and assisted living facilities, food services, professional and collegiate sports, transportation services, utilities, law firms, and employers.
Results will be available in GENETWORx’s online portal or by phone (610-726-1205) in less than 72 hours after the sample has been received. If you provided your mobile number, you’ll receive a text from GENETWORx with a link to our secure portal.
GENETWORx COVID-19 Total Antibody (IgM & IgG) test is 99.8% specific and 100% sensitive when performed at least 14 days after COVID-19 infection.
Contact GENETWORx by calling 610-726-1205 to order your Total Antibody test. You’ll have a testing kit within 24 hours.
Yes. If you believe you’ve been exposed to COVID-19 or have tested positive but do not have symptoms, you can still get a GENETWORx Antibody test.
If you’ve tested positive for COVID-19, been at risk for exposure, have had symptoms or not, you are eligible for COVID-19 antibody testing.
There is no age minimum for antibody testing.
Although having the antibodies does not guarantee immunity, early research indicates there is at least some protection from previous COVID-19 exposure.
Because antibodies play such an important role in the battle against COVID-19, healthcare professionals need to know who has been exposed to COVID-19 and if they’ve developed an immune response. As we learn more and more about COVID-19, these results, combined with other important data, could help figure out individuals who are more (or less) susceptible to more COVID-19 infections.
If you test positive for COVID-19 antibodies, it likely means that you have been exposed to COVID-19. Antibodies are often the immune system’s way to fight off infections. However, antibodies don’t guarantee immunity against certain viruses. Unfortunately, we don’t know if people who have COVID-19 antibodies are protected in the future. Research is still ongoing.
Yes, you will want to social distance if you have COVID-19 antibodies. Just because you have antibodies doesn’t mean you’re immune from COVID-19 infection. Plus, you can transport the virus, increasing the risk of infection to other people.
No, you don’t have to get sick in order to get antibodies. Research shows that a large amount of people have the antibodies to COVID-19 without ever actually getting sick. That’s why some people test positive for COVID-19 without ever having any symptoms.
Simply having the presence of antibodies doesn’t mean you are immune against future COVID-19 infections. Antibody testing provides a yes or no when it comes to creation of antibodies to a specific virus.
Currently, there are no known medical risks associated with taking the COVID-10 Antibody test, beyond that of a typical blood draw.
