Find out whether you have had COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2), with a highly accurate blood test. Available from Dynacare with a doctor’s prescription, the test checks for the presence of COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) antibodies in your blood. When these antibodies are found, it means that you have had a COVID-19 infection in the past.
More accurate than other tests
Dynacare’s COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) Antibody Testing offers greater accuracy than some other tests. It uses a 2-step, double confirmation process when a previous infection is detected. The extra step reduces the chance of an incorrect (false positive) result.1
Uncover hidden cases
This test can confirm the many cases of COVID-19 that were not officially diagnosed, or that occurred without any symptoms.2
This test can be done 14 days or more after an active infection. It will not tell you if you have COVID-19 right now, and a negative result does not entirely rule out previous exposure.
In Ontario, the COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) Antibody Test is $70. Currently, Dynacare offers this test in Ontario and Quebec only. For more information on this test in Quebec, please contact Customer Care at 514.486.8025

What Are Antibodies?
Antibodies are microscopic proteins made by the blood cells when your body fights off an infection. Antibodies may protect you from getting the same disease again. For example, when you get sick with chickenpox or receive the chickenpox vaccine, your blood cells respond by making antibodies that protect you from getting it in the future. This is how immunity happens, although it doesn’t occur with all diseases.
A positive antibody test result may indicate previous or current exposure to an illness but should NOT be used to infer immunity status or infectivity. It is unknown whether COVID-19 antibodies indicate protective immunity and for how long.
