A positive serologic antibody result indicates that an individual has likely
produced an immune response to the SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) virus. A
negative serologic antibody result indicates that an individual has not
developed detectable antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) at the time
of testing. Negative results do not rule out SARS-CoV-2 infection.
Positive antibody results may be due to past or present infection with
non-SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus strains, such as coronavirus HKU1, NL63,
OC43, or 229E. The test may produce false positives and false
negatives. The LabCorp serological antibody test has not been reviewed
by the FDA, but are being offered by the company in accordance with the
