A result of NEGATIVE means that antibodies to the SARS-COV-2 virus were not detected in your sample.
If you have been vaccinated: A result of NEGATIVE suggests that your body has not produced enough antibodies to SARS-COV-2 to be detectable in your sample.
Testing for antibodies induced by vaccination should be performed at least two weeks after complete vaccination (all required doses).
If you have NOT been vaccinated: A result of NEGATIVE suggests that your body has not produced enough antibodies to SARS-COV-2 to be detectable in your sample.
A NEGATIVE result does NOT mean:
- that you have NOT had any prior SARS-COV-2 infections.
- that you do NOT have a current SARS-COV-2 infection.
It can take one to three weeks after an infection to develop enough antibodies to be detectable in this test.
In the months after an infection, antibody levels may decrease below the detection level.
Results from this test should NOT be used to diagnose a current SARS-COV-2 infection or to inform about the status of an infection.
Conclusions about protective immunity to infection cannot be made on the basis of the results provided.
It is possible for this test to give a negative result that is incorrect (false negative) in some people.
