Challenge 4: How Can We Use Antibodies to Detect SARS-CoV-2?

Activity: Using antibodies to detect SARS-CoV-2


  • Look online to find out the roles of antibodies in the immune system. List them.


  • Draw a diagram explaining how antibodies are produced.


  • Show the structure of an antibody and label the parts and their functions.

Develop an Argument

  • Use evidence to support which part of the antibody would help us identify SARS-CoV-2 in our sample.


  • Outline a protocol to generate and isolate antibodies that recognize SARS-CoV-2.
