Description

LP37332-1   Borrelia burgdorferi Ab.IgM
The detection by Western blot of immunoglobulin M antibodies directed against Borrelia burgdorferi, a Gram negative bacterium, is one of the most reliable tests for the presence of the pathogen. Borrelia burgdorferi is transmitted to humans by the tick Ixodes scapularis and causes Lyme disease. The presence of IgM bands 21/25, 39, and 41 indicates a positive result.
