Free COVID-19 antibody testing

The UCI Blood Donor Center is now offering free COVID-19 antibody testing for qualified donors who donate blood or platelets. This is exclusively available at the donor center in Orange, not at mobile drives. Testing is open to all.

Antibody testing does not diagnose a current case of COVID. It may help determine whether a person was previously infected, but not in all cases.Please read this Q&A to better understand the COVID-19 antibody test.

If you feel unwell for any reason, please postpone your donation. Individuals who believe they may be ill with COVID-19 should not donate until they are symptom-free for 14 days and feeling well and healthy. Review other donor requirements.

The blood donor center is located in Pavilion 3 next to Occupational Health. Hours are Mon., Tues., Thurs., Fri. from 7 a.m. – 5 p.m. Make an appointment now. The donor center staff can be reached at 714-456-LIFE or donateblood@uci.edu to answer any questions you may have.
