*Due to normal lab processes, a result of “indeterminate” is possible. In these instances, the laboratory will re-run samples and/or reach out to the patient to recollect the sample. These situations may result cause a delay in turn-around times.
If you have already visited a Valley Medical and Wellness location and provided your sample(s) for testing, we cannot cancel your order or refund your payment. Testing will be completed and results will be available in your Valley Medical Laboratory patient portal account or will be sent to you via secure text messaging.
About the Neutralizing Covid-19 Antibody Test
The results of the Neutralizing Antibody test are meant to help you assess if you have an immune response to SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Adaptive Immunity is developed by a person's immune system after past infection or vaccination where antibodies work to prevent future disease by remembering the pathogen and creating an immune response. A Neutralizing Antibody binds to a virus and interferes with its ability to infect a cell. You should not interpret the results of this test as an indication or degree of immunity or protection from reinfection since more research is needed about this specific virus to determine if you have protection from future COVID-19 infection. This test should not be used to determine the level of immunity you have. If you have questions about your results from this test, please talk with your healthcare provider.
