Free COVID-19 antibody testing

By August 4, 2020 Commentary, COVID-19, In the News

The UCI Blood Donor Center is now offering free COVID-19 antibody testing for qualified donors who donate blood or platelets.

This is exclusively available at the donor center in Orange, not at mobile drives. Testing is open to all, not just UCI employees. Antibody testing does not diagnose a current case of COVID. It may help determine whether a person was previously infected, but not in all cases. Please read this Q & A to better understand the COVID antibody test. The blood donor center is located in Pavilion 3 next to Occupational Health. Hours are Mon., Tues., Thurs., Fri. from 7 a.m. – 5 p.m.
