A rapid antibody test requires the patient's blood sample and can only detect antibodies. The body produces antibodies in response to an infectious agent such as a virus. These antibodies, however, generally arise after 4 days to more than a week after infection, so they are not used to diagnose current disease.
Rapid antibody test kits yield faster results – approximately 45 minutes to an hour – compared to RT-PCR tests which have a turnaround time of at least 24 hours.
