Important note for the VITRO® Immunodiagnostic test results: Currently, detection of antibodies does not directly imply immunity and timing of immunity for the COVID-19 disease. The immunity duration conferred by the antibodies is currently unknown. Results from the test are not intended to be used as the sole basis for diagnosis. False reactive results may occur due to cross-reactivity from pre-existing antibodies or other possible causes.
