What is the Anti-SARS CoV2 IgG (ELFA) test?
The COVID-19 Antibody IgG helps in detecting the presence of specific IgG antibodies against COVID-19. Your body produces antibodies when you get an infection, and these antibodies help fight against the infection. If you have any COVID-19 antibodies in your blood, it's likely you've had the infection or have been exposed to the infection before.

What does it measure?
COVID-19 serology tests measure antibodies in the blood. These antibodies are proteins generated by the immune system in response to pathogens such as viruses.Mainly, the body produces antibodies that are specific to SARS-CoV-2. These tests can look for types of antibodies known as immunoglobulins, including immunoglobulin G (IgG), immunoglobulin M (IgM), and immunoglobulin A (IgA). These antibodies are developed at different stages after the infection.While the testing is possible for all three of these types of immunoglobulins, most COVID-19 antibody tests focus on IgG or the total number of antibodies. IgG antibodies take 3–4 weeks to develop but can last for several months. And as a result, they are generally viewed as the most reliable indicator of a prior infection.
