Helping you and your students get back to campus

As colleges and universities look to welcome students back to campus, there are understandable concerns about health and safety during the ongoing pandemic.

That’s why we’re offering our Back to School program – a solution that helps your students, faculty, and staff understand their risk so they can stay focused on education.

The program combines two types of screening tests – one for IgG antibodies and one for active infection – to provide insight into COVID-19 infection status. IgG antibody tests are a prescreen for those without symptoms, whereas molecular active infection tests detect the presence of the virus in symptomatic or high-risk individuals.

We customize our program to meet your unique needs and provide additional support for continued testing throughout the school year.

The antibody tests (sometimes known as the serology tests or IgG tests) are intended for use as an aid in identifying individuals with an adaptive immune response to SARS-CoV-2, indicating recent or prior infection. Results are for the detection of SARS-CoV-2 antibodies. IgG antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 are generally detectable in blood several days after initial infection, although the duration of time antibodies are present post-infection is not well characterized. At this time, it is unknown for how long antibodies persist following infection and if the presence of antibodies confers protective immunity. Individuals may have detectable virus present for several weeks following seroconversion. Negative results do not preclude acute SARS-CoV-2 infection. If acute infection is suspected, molecular testing for SARS-CoV-2 is necessary. The antibody test should not be used to diagnose acute SARS-CoV-2 infection. False positive results for the antibody test may occur due to cross-reactivity from pre-existing antibodies or other possible causes.
