Lyme Antibody, IgM

Borrelia burgdorferi IgM Abs (EIA), Lyme Disease IgM

Specimen Collection Criteria

Effective May 8, 2006, the Lyme Antibody IgG assay will no longer be performed in the Special Testing Laboratory. The literature suggests the combined Lyme Antibody IgG/IgM is the preferred test since it is sensitive to detection of antibodies in early and late Lyme disease and has less cross-reactivity with other organisms. All equivocal and positive results will be sent out for confirmation.
