Serology assays can be used for discerning seroprevalence, screening volunteers for vaccine trials and convalescent plasma donations, as well as predicting infection or vaccine-induced immunity.
Several commercially available SARS-CoV-2 immunoassays have been evaluated for their sensitivity and further studies have evaluated the role of the antigen target in its ability to assess protection against reinfection. Public health strategies going forward will be based on the ability to answer a) how circulating antibody levels that are specific for each viral antigen change with time following natural infection and b) which serological assays best predict protective immunity.
In this webinar, Dr. Sara Jenks, consultant biochemist, will demonstrate the value of serology in managing COVID-19.
