What is an At-Home Immunity Antibody Test?
This first-ever antibody (IgG) test panel (or titer panel) generally indicates if you have antibody protection for 11 common infectious diseases for which vaccines are available. If the test indicates a lack of antibody protection, this is often called a “gap” in protection. The 11 vaccine-preventable diseases (VPDs) on the test panel are listed below:
- Hepatitis A
- Hepatitis B (Anti-HBs)
- Rubella (German Measles)
- Tetanus (Lockjaw)
- Pertussis (Whooping Cough)
- H. Influenza B
- Varicella Zoster (Chicken Pox & Shingles)
Note that all of these infectious diseases can be dangerous to your health.
The good news is this test is actionable – if you have a gap, you can take action.
Why do I need an At-Home Immunity Antibody Test?
Vaccines for the 11 infectious diseases on the antibody test panel (listed in the question above) are often taken as children and many are repeated in adulthood. However, some individuals miss specific vaccinations, or do not complete the full vaccination series. Others may not have a good response to a particular vaccine. Also, many individuals do not have current vaccination records, so it is unknown if a vaccine was missed. By adhering to the recommended vaccination schedule, you are more likely to have adequate antibody protection. Importantly, antibodies in your blood enable your body to fight infectious diseases.
Even if a person adheres to a vaccination schedule, antibody levels naturally decline over time and at different rates, so your antibody levels can drop to a level that may indicate a lack of protection.
Specific examples where antibody testing is very important include (1) immunocompromised or immunosuppressed individuals due to either a health condition or drugs taken (“immunosuppressive drugs”). Here, the antibody test panel can help identify gaps in antibody protection, which is quite common. (2) Women planning to become pregnant should also know if they have gaps in protection – for mother and baby. (3) Persons whose workplace confers higher exposure to certain infections or who might expose their patients/clients (healthcare workers, daycare workers, restaurant employees, etc.) should also test for gaps in protection.
With this test panel, you can manage your individual health by measuring your level of antibody protection for each of the 11 diseases in the panel. If you have a gap, you can take action.
Antibodies in your blood enable your body to fight infectious diseases.
- What do I need to do to prepare for an At-Home Immunity Antibody Test?
You don’t need any special preparations for an at home antibody test panel.
- How quickly will I receive my test results?
Your test results, in general take approximately 3 weeks from date of arrival of your dried blood sample card (DBS) to the testing facility. Afterwards, you can download your test results report to your computer and smartphone.
- What do the Results of My At-Home Immunity Antibody Test Mean?
All antibody test panel results include a “qualitative” result (positive or negative) for each of the 11 diseases on the panel (listed in the question above). (Therefore, you have 11 results.) If you are positive for antibodies to an individual disease, this generally indicates antibody protection for this infectious disease. This is desirable. If you are negative for antibodies to an individual disease, this indicates a lack of antibody protection for this infectious disease. This is also called a “gap” in protection.
Besides a qualitative result, all antibody test panel results include an additional “numeric value” (number) result for each of the 11 diseases on the panel. This is a measure of the level of antibody present for each disease. This number provides additional information. If the qualitative result is positive, which generally indicates protection, the additional number (provided in a special graphical chart) indicates the level of antibodies present. If the qualitative result is negative, which indicates that you may not have protection, the additional number indicates the level of antibodies present, already known to be deficient.
The final test panel results provide additional information, including a special graphical chart. It is recommended you discuss these antibody test results with your personal healthcare provider, who can help further explain the results.
- What do I do if any of my At-Home Immunity Antibody Test Results indicate a “Gap” (Negative)?
If any of the antibody test results are negative, it is recommended you discuss these results with your personal healthcare provider, who will not only further explain the results, but may also recommend a vaccine(s) or booster(s), or that you avoid exposure outbreaks or travel to high-risk areas.

Tests used in myLAB Box kits have been developed by myLAB Box clinical laboratory affiliates, who determine precise performance characteristics for each test. These performance characteristics help ensure the consistency and accuracy of test results. Tests have not been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), although individual components of some tests performed in the laboratory are FDA-cleared. The FDA has determined that such clearance or approval is not necessary for laboratory-developed tests such as those offered by my LAB Box. These tests are used for clinical purposes and should not be regarded as investigational or for research. MyLAB Box clinical laboratory affiliates follow the rigorous accreditation guidelines of the College of American Pathologists (CAP) and are certified by the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Act (CLIA) of 1988 as qualified to perform high-complexity clinical testing.
