What are Antibodies?
Antibodies are specialized, Y-shaped proteins that bind like a lock-and-key to the body's foreign invaders — whether they are viruses, bacteria, fungi or parasites. They are the "search" battalion of the immune system's search-and-destroy system, tasked with finding an enemy and marking it for destruction.
Rapid Antibody Test (Capillary Blood Collection)
For an auto lancet hold the finger and firmly press the lancet against the finger and puncture the skin. When using a traditional lancet hold the finger firmly and make a quick firm prick. Dispose the lancet in a biohazard sharps container. Wipe away the first drop of blood with a sterile gauze pad or cotton ball.
Rapid Antibody Test (Venipuncture)
Phlebotomy is the removal of blood from the body, and therapeutic phlebotomy is the preferred treatment for blood disorders in which the removal of red blood cells or serum iron is the most efficient method for managing the symptoms and complications.
Rapid Antibody Titer (SRBD)
The antibody titer is a test that detects the presence and measures the amount of antibodies within a person’s blood. The amount and diversity of antibodies correlate to the strength of the body’s immune response.
