During a webcast on antibody testing for the new coronavirus, Elitza S. Theel, Ph.D., director of the Mayo Clinic's Infectious Disease Serology Laboratory, will explain what clinicians know about antibody testing for the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes the COVID-19 illness.
She also will explain what journalists can expect to learn in the coming months about these tests. In addition, she will answer our questions about what we know about immunity to the virus and what we need to know about the specificity and sensitivity of antibody testing, among other topics.
