Lyme, Western Blot, Serum
The Lyme, Western Blot, Serum test is used to detect antibodies for specific for B burgdorferi.
Provides both IgM and IgG Western blot results. Increased specificity reduces cross-reactivity from other spirochetes. Detect and analyze antibodies against specific B burgdorferi proteins. The sensitivity of a Western blot assay by itself is not sufficient to assess Lyme infection adequately. Both EIA and Western blot tests should be performed.
