US Drug Test Centers Launches COVID-19 Antibody Testing Nationwide

Press Release from US Drug Test Centers

LAS VEGAS, July 20, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- US Drug Test Centers, one of the largest testing companies in the United States, announced they are now offering COVID-19 Antibody Testing with FDA Emergency Use Authorization at 1,800+ locations nationwide. No prescription is necessary. To book an appointment, visit www.usdrugtestcenters.com, select a location, order a test and an order from a local doctor will be sent to you in 6-12 hours. The test includes a simple blood draw, and results are received usually within 24-48 hours.

Antibody tests can play a critical role important in the fight against COVID-19 as they can help identify individuals who may have been exposed to SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes the COVID-19 disease, and have developed an immune response. Using antibody tests and clinical follow-up can also provide more information on immunity against COVID-19 for research and medical developments for the virus. Although having antibodies usually gives immunity from further infection, there is not enough evidence at this time to suggest that people who have a type of antibody called immunoglobulin G (IgG) 4 are protected against future COVID-19 infection.

US Drug Test Centers is staying open throughout this pandemic to support its clients and community. Dr. Jonathan Baktari, MD and CEO, e7 Health and US Drug Test Centers said, "There is an increasing number of fraudulent tests being made available, so it's important for people to verify the test is FDA-authorized."

The COVID-19 antibody test does not assess whether you are currently infected with COVID-19. If you were recently exposed or are currently experiencing signs and symptoms of COVID-19, Dr. Jonathan Baktari, MD recommends that you contact your healthcare provider and/or state health department for further guidance.
