This is a blood test used to find past exposure to the Novel SARS-CoV-2 virus and potential immunity by discovering antibodies in the blood. Antibodies in the blood are developed by the body in a reaction to a viral infection, which can help fight against future interaction with the virus.

According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, "Under the FDA’s March 16 policy for serological tests, the FDA provided regulatory flexibility for developers offering such tests without FDA review and without an EUA where they have notified FDA that they have validated their tests and provide disclaimers about the limitations of the tests with any results generated by their tests, as outlined in the policy. The FDA does not review the validation, or accuracy, data for these tests unless an EUA is submitted. Test for which developers have provided a notification are listed on the FDA’s COVID-19 Diagnostics FAQ page." In addition, there are chances of false-positives with the test. Therefore, not all positive results determine partial immunity or past exposure to the virus.
