Do you need more information

Transmitted through the bite of infected ticks, Lyme Borreliosis is the most common and rapidly spreading tick-borne disease in the world. However many of the symptoms can also occur with other diseases. VIDAS® Lyme IgM and VIDAS® Lyme IgG allow accurate, rapid, differential diagnosis to avoid misdiagnosis and help prevent progression of the disease towards severe and disabling neurological, cutaneous or articular manifestations.

Clear-cut serological profile

  • Separate IgG and IgM results to facilitate classification of Lyme Borreliosis as early or late/chronic, active or immune
  • Helps ensure patients receive rapid, optimized treatment depending on their stage of infection
  • Easy result interpretation:
    • No equivocal zone for VIDAS Lyme IgG results
    • Avoids unnecessary patient anxiety and limits additional testing


Detection of immunological response following a bite from a tick
infected with Borrelia burgdorferi

 

High specificity and sensitivity*

  • The tests use innovative recombinant chimeric proteins* (VlsE, DbpA, OspC), allowing detection of all main pathogenic Borrelia strains
  • Less rework and confirmatory tests
  • Low level of cross-reaction with syphilis and other infectious diseases*
  • Only patients with Lyme Borreliosis are treated
