Sensitivity = 98.2%
Sensitivity, or positive percent agreement (PPA), describes how well an assay correctly detects antibodies when the sample is positive. The LightDeck COVID-19 Total Antibody Test detected 56 of 57 positive samples.
Specificity = 99.4%
Specificity, or negative percent agreement (NPA), was evaluated in a study with 320 samples. This high NPA leads to low false positive rates, allowing clinicians to deliver highly accurate results about immune response to the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
|Measure||Point Estimate||95% CL|
|Sensitivity (PPA)||98.2% (56/57)||(90.7% – 99.8%)|
|Specificity (NPA)||99.4% (318/320)||(97.8% – 99.8%)|
|Positive Predictive Value†||89.6%||(76.5% – 100.0%)*|
|Negative Predictive Value†||99.9%||(99.7% – 100.0%)*|
Critical Role of Antibody Testing
Determine past infection
Identify whether a person had been infected by SARS-CoV-2 and mounted an immune response.
Test for antibodies to determine the percentage of people in a community had a prior infection.
Assess immune response
Help identify adaptive immune response to infection or vaccination
