Gem Care offering COVID-19 antibody testing at company sites.


Gem Care is now offering COVID-19 antibody testing at company sites.

We recently had customers with employees who had to quarantine for a week or longer waiting for COVID-19 virus test results. These employees might have otherwise been working instead of sitting at home, waiting. Going back to our roots as a DOE drug testing company, Gem Care offered a COVID-19 antibody test to these customers to help with their decision making. The test yields results in only 15 minutes. We thought this might be useful to other companies in our community who may be experiencing a similar situation. As a result, Gem Care is now offering COVID-19 antibody testing for any employer in the area.

The test requires a “finger prick” blood sample so we are providing a healthcare professional to administer it. It’s important to note that while the test detects COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) IgM and IgG antibodies, it doesn’t detect the live virus. These antibodies are present when a person first begins to fight off the virus and then remain for an amount of time afterward.

We will schedule a healthcare professional to come to your location to perform testing for five or more people for $95 dollars a test. Since this is a new service, we would be willing to discuss options for companies who have different or specific needs. 

For more information or to schedule tests at your location, contact Berton Pinkham at 865-560-9891 or email
