web COVID 19 Antibody Testing 2 - Covid Info

COVID Antibody Testing

Antibody testing (also called serology testing) looks to see if you have developed antibodies, the proteins critical for fighting off and clearing out the virus that causes COVID-19.

COVID-19 antibody will be negative until at least 14 days from the time of sickness or exposure before looking for antibodies.

How long does it take to get the results?  Evolve receives results in 1-3 days.

What does it mean if the antibody test is positive?  A positive result means you were exposed to COVID-19. But it does NOT mean you are immune to COVID-19.  Evolve encourages everyone to still follow all possible protective measures. 

The World Health Organization has specifically warned against using a positive result to suggest you are “immune” and can return to normal activity.

Keep in mind there are over 200 Different COVID-19 Antibody Tests Available

The specific test is drawn at Evolve and performed by Quest Diagnostics using Abbott Architect SARS-CoV-2 IgG.

Data submitted to the FDA for approval shows 100% sensitivity and 99.6% specificity.

COVID 19 VIRAL SWAB Testing - Covid Info

COVID Viral Swab

Evolve’s COVID PCR swab testing has the fastest turn-around time in Maryland!

The COVID swab test is performed as a drive-thru test.

Stay in your car avoid the long waits and crowded, dirty waiting room.

Stay safe and protected.

Prior to obtaining a COVID swab, you will meet with one of our providers through a Virtual Visit to evaluate the indications for testing, make sure the COVID swab is the right test and answer any questions you may have.

Results are usually back in 1-2 business days. We text a copy of your results right away. 

The cost for the evaluation is only $25 for Evolve members. If you simply need a COVID test prior to travel, there is NO CHARGE for members. 

Non-member cost is $145 for the virtual visit.

Non-members: Consider joining Evolve! Each COVID test going forward will be only $25 or no charge (depending on indications). Learn more about Evolve’s membership here. 

There is no laboratory fee for the COVID test. Billing for COVID testing is managed by the lab and should be covered in full by your insurance or the state’s uninsured fund.

Evolve uses Integrated Cellular and Molecular Diagnostics (ICMD), a locally-owned, highly-complex accredited lab located in Greenbelt, Maryland.

ICMD uses ThermoFisher Scientific Applied Biosystems TaqPath COVID-19 Real-time PCR. ThermoFisher is the global leader in service science with this COVID test serving many other countries.

Which COVID Test Evolve - Covid Info

Which COVID Test is Right for YOU?

There are two main types of tests you can have for COVID:

Viral testing  &  Antibody testing. 

COVID Swab looks for the SARS-CoV-2 virus itself.

If the COVID swab is POSITIVE, then you are COVID-19 contagious (whether you feel sick or not).

If the antibody test is positive, then you will know you were exposed to COVID-19 in the past. 

All of Evolve’s COVID testing is performed in the safest possible manner.

Our dedicated staff are experienced, caring professionals focused on performing the test accurately — and safely.
