What is the chance that my COVID-19 antibody test result was a false positive?

False positives occur when a person tests positive even though they DO NOT have the antibodies for COVID-19. There is a small chance that the result could be a false positive.

Manufacturers must demonstrate a high specificity of approximately 99% to 100% to ensure validation of their test. 

If you have additional questions, please contact the lab directly for more information.
