Utah company offering antibody testing to general public

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4 News) – As the State of Utah continues to battle the COVID-19 pandemic, state and private labs are beginning to conduct antibody testing to determine the prevalence of the virus in Utah.

Olympus Health & Performance say it is now the first private company in the state offering coronavirus antibody testing to the general public.

Company representatives say the test shows if a patient has developed antibodies for the coronavirus in 10 minutes or less.

“So far, we’ve tested over 400 people, and we’re finding the overall positive rate to be about 5.4 %, very similar to what has been described for asymptomatic people in other areas of the country, said Lauren Lightfield, NP, CEO of Olympus Health & Performance.

The company is working with state health officials to report test results to track the spread and slowing of the virus.

Utah health company offers public mobile antibody testing in Salt Lake and Park City

A Utah company is now offering rapid COVID-19 antibody testing to the general public in Salt Lake City, Park City and surrounding areas.

Olympus Health & Performance is the first private company in the state to offer coronavirus antibody testing to the general public, according to a news release sent Thursday from the company.

The tests show results in 10 minutes or less and determine if the patient has antibodies for the disease rather than determining if they are actively infected with the novel coronavirus, the release said.

The health company began testing last week and as of Thursday had administered more than 400 people, of which there was a 5.4% positive rate.

“This new test only identifies whether you’ve developed the antibodies for the disease. It is not a test to see if you currently carry the virus or have COVID-19,” said Dr. Robert Sawyer, chief scientific officer at Olympus Health & Performance. “If you’ve been exposed to or are infected by the coronavirus but have not yet developed antibodies, this test may not be able to identify your exposure until more time has passed.”

Olympus Health is working with state officials to track and slow the spread of the virus.

Tests cost $150 [NOTE from Olympus: Testing is now at no cost] and are by appointment only. Because of limited supply, testing is first come, first serve.

“If you are tested and we detect no coronavirus antibodies in your blood, it means you are more susceptible to getting ill from the coronavirus,” Sawyer added. “We continue to stress you should continue to follow all CDC and local government recommendations for minimizing your exposure to the virus.”
