As of June 15, 2020, Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center is testing now all blood donations for the COVID-19 antibody. This test will be performed in addition to the standard testing all blood donations receive. To see the test results or to check your Donor Rewards points redeemable for digital gift cards, access your Digital Donor account. The antibody test results will be available in approximately 7 days.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the overwhelming response for Antibody testing, results are delayed. We are processing your tests and will post the results to your Digital Donor account as soon as they are complete.
This test is authorized by the FDA for detecting the presence of antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 and is not intended for diagnosis of COVID-19. The Blood Center will invite donors who test positive for the antibodies to return and give convalescent plasma to help patients recover in local hospitals.
