NTL Laboratory, in conjunction with Imugen, is pleased to offer Tick-Borne Disease Testing. These tests are designed to provide clinicians with unquestionably superior but not widely available testing techniques to aid in the diagnosis of Lyme and other tick-borne diseases. The Lyme Disease test panel includes a set of assays, which are highly sensitive in early infection and extremely accurate in laboratory diagnosis of Lyme meningitis, carditis and arthritis. The antibody capture test is used in association with immunoblotting (Western blots) to provide patterns of antibody isotype responses that are characteristic with the different stages of infection with B. burgdorferi. Acute and convalescent testing is also available because all specimens are archived for 6 years. Archived specimen testing when combined with Imugen’s quantification of the immunoglobulin levels provides the clinician with unique and unprecedented aids in making stage-specific diagnosis.
