Abbott Laboratories was granted emergency use approval by the FDA for its COVID-19 antibody test.

Abbott’s test is different from an earlier one and can determine a recent coronavirus infection by a blood sample.

This test may help doctors determine how far along a patient is in their recovery from the virus.

Seven other Abbott tests have also received emergency use authorization during the pandemic.
