Apostle Diagnostics Testing Methods

COVID- 19 rtPCR Test

The polymerase chain reaction (PCR) method is considered the "gold standard" for the detection of COVID-19 and is characterized by rapid detection, high sensitivity, and specificity. Available for groups/organizations and individuals/families. 

COVID- 19 Neutralization Antibody Test

Intended for use as an aid in identifying individuals with an adaptive immune response to SARS-CoV-2, indicating effective vaccination and recent or prior infection. This test is a qualitative detection of total neutralizing antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 in human serum and K2-EDTA plasma. Available for individuals and families only. 

COVID- 19 IgG/IgM Antibody Test

SARS-CoV-2 infection elicits the development of IgM and IgG antibodies. IgM is most useful in determining recent infection while IgG may remain detectable for a long period of time. We use an FDA emergency use authorization (EUA) authorized serology test to detect these SARS-CoV-2 antibodies. Available for individuals and families only.
