Antibody Testing

  • There are currently NO approved at-home antibody tests. The counterfeit test kits are potentially dangerous, produced haphazardly, and may even be contaminated.
  • As of May 27, thirteen serology (antibody) tests have received an EUA. NONE are at-home tests. Go here for information on these tests.

Counterfeit Tests

Counterfeit COVID-19 and antibody testing kits are now becoming increasingly available online and throughout the DFW area. Please be aware that legitimate tests are not available over the counter at any retail locations. All COVID-19 tests are operating under FDA Emergency Use Authorizations (EUA), so be wary of claims that a test is FDA-approved or -cleared. Additionally, a provider with an EUA for the PCR test (the test to confirm COVID-19) may not have an EUA for a serology test (for antibodies).
