This test is a qualitative detection of total neutralizing antibodies to SARS- CoV-2 in human serum and K2-EDTA plasma. Intended for use as an aid in identifying individuals with an adaptive immune response to SARS-CoV-2, indicating recent or prior infection.
This test utilizes a U.S. Food and Drug Administration authorized serology test that detects neutralizing antibodies, which are antibodies that bind to a specific part of a pathogen and have been observed in a laboratory setting to decrease SARS-CoV-2 viral infection of cells. The FDA issued an emergency use authorization (EUA) for the SARS-CoV-2 Neutralization Antibody Detection Kit utilized in this test, which specifically detects this type of antibody.
Although the FDA has previously issued EUAs to more than 50 antibody (serology) tests, those tests only detect the presence of binding antibodies. Binding antibodies bind to a pathogen, such as a virus, but do not necessarily decrease the infection and destruction of cells. It’s important to note that the effect of neutralizing antibodies for SARS-CoV-2 in humans it is still being researched.
