Antibody Screen Blood Test (Labcorp)
The Antibody Screen looks for atypical IgG antibodies. This test is typically done as part of prenatal screening to determine if a mother possesses antibodies which may be harmful to her unborn baby. The development of these antibodies typically results from a mother having a different blood type from her baby. These antibodies can persist and cause complications with future pregnancies as well.
Please note that identification of antibody(ies) and titer of clinically significant antibodies will be automatically performed at no additional cost if the antibody screen is positive.
For additional prenatal testing options, please see our Prenatal Testing Category.
Turnaround time for the Antibody test is typically 1 business day.
