SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) is totally novel to the population, so no one is immune.
Each year, people are already immune to the flu because of exposure to prior variants, or because of annual vaccination. There is no vaccine available for SARS-CoV-2 yet. We should expect it will be at least Q1 2021 before a tested vaccine is widely available.
In the meantime, everyone is likely vulnerable, so we should expect that an extremely large number of people will be infected.

AIM Labs provides antibody (serological) tests for SARS-CoV-2. These tests are intended for individuals who may have had COVID-19 symptoms but are no longer symptomatic.
The test is designed to help determine if a patient has been exposed to the SARS-CoV-2 virus and if the patient has developed antibodies against SARS-CoV-2.
Antibody testing can give you information you need to know so you can go back to your normal life routine. Antibodies are the body’s way of remembering how it responded to an infection so it can attack again if exposed to the same pathogen.
Our full-service CLIA certified and COLA licensed laboratory is centrally located in St. Louis, Missouri, and is uniquely positioned to provide testing for clients thoughout the Untied States.
Antibody testing can give you information you need to know so you can go back to your normal life routine! Antibodies are the body’s way of remembering how it responded to an infection so it can attack again if exposed to the same pathogen.
If a person has antibodies in their blood, that means they have immune cells available to fight the virus, which lowers the risk of getting sick.
IgM and IgG are the key antibodies in your body that can tell you what YOUR individual status is after being COVID
IgM is the antibody that appears in the body once symptoms are detected. This indicates infection has ACTUALLY taken place. This is a great test to rule out any possibility of false results due to any reason.
IgG is the antibody that your body generates after infection and IgM disappears indicating your body now has antibody resistance to the virus. Once IgG appears, you can feel safe going back to work, school and your normal life. This also makes you a great candidate for serum donation for assisting other patients with treatment!
AIM is an industry leader in antibody testing equipped with state-of-the-art technology to provide accurate and reliable results. Our technology uses a fully automated chemiluminescence platform to test blood specimens by treatment and light generation proportional to the concentration of SARS-CoV-2 antibodies.
Our technology is highly specific to the COVID-19 target. Our testing yields ZERO cross reactions and ZERO false positives caused by coronaviruses other than COVID-19, a phenomenon many other laboratory platforms are struggling with.
