Differential diagnosis of Lyme Borreliosis The combined use of the automated VIDAS® Lyme IgM and VIDAS® Lyme IgG assays will help you provide patients with reliable, differential diagnosis of Lyme borreliosis in just 27 minutes. Clear-cut results High specificity and sensitivity Specific detection of IgG antibodies to Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato (sl) and in cerebro-spinal fluid (CSF) samples, to aid in the diagnosis of Neuroborreliosis* 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 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
