T-cells vs. antibodies

  • In studies, the T-Detect COVID test outperformed leading antibody tests.1

The T-Detect COVID test is a highly sensitive and specific test that can detect the specific T cell signature in response to SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.

Sensitivity based on Positive Percent Agreement (PPA) with PCR testing.

How it works

1. Partner

Sign a business agreement, establish an account, and prepay for test kits. Contact us to learn more.

2. Blood draw

Place a patient order, collect blood sample, and ship the kit back to Adaptive.

3. Results

Receive results via our secure portal approximately 7-10 days from shipment of blood sample (including 5-7 days for lab processing*).

If you have a small number of patients who would like to take the test and a business agreement isn’t right for you, we can validate your credentials and register you to order. Setup an account or contact Clinical Services at 888-552-8988.

* Lab processing begins once all required provider and patient information is validated.

Special self-pay test price $150

Additional fees include test authorization ($9) and blood draw (on-site lab: $60 or in-home: $140).

The price does not represent the usual and customary charge for the T-Detect COVID test and is subject to change. The T-Detect COVID test is FSA/HSA eligible. It is not currently available in the state of New York. 

Frequently asked questions

How does T-Detect COVID work?

T cells are the first responders of the adaptive immune system and activate the antibody response. While antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 naturally wane and are detectable in the shorter term, T cell responses can persist in the blood long after antibody responses wane.1,2,4

The T-Detect COVID test can detect T cells in a blood sample that can remain for up to several months after symptoms appear.1,2,3
