Namida Lab of Fayetteville has expanded its COVID-19 antibody testing services to the Little Rock area in partnership with Heights Corner Market.
Namida’s testing site will be adjacent to Heights Corner Market at 5018 Kavanaugh Blvd., and both on-site parking and curbside service will be available. Testing will be conducted from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Monday through Wednesday.
“The coronavirus is still a very real threat as cases continue to rise. Providing a space where Namida can give antibody testing to the public is the least I can do as a business owner in our community,” said Eric Herget, owner of Heights Corner Market, in a news release. “Namida Lab is an Arkansas-grown company, and we are proud to work alongside their team.”
Dr. Anna Daily, Namida’s director of clinical and regulatory affairs, said “While an antibody test does not diagnose an active COVID-19 infection like a PCR ‘swab’ test, it can verify whether you’ve been infected with the virus in the past and whether you’ve developed antibodies against it. Together, the PCR test and the antibody test can provide the fullest picture of your current standing and history with the virus.”
Namida’s antibody test is $99. Health care workers, first responders and educators will receive discounted pricing of $69 per test.
