ECO Laboratory is a Massachusetts licensed and CLIA certified laboratory that now offers the Western Blot (IgG) antibody test to confirm exposure to Lyme disease. Now accepting specimens from individuals and referring physicians.
In 1994 the CDC, FDA, NIH and others recommended a two-test methodology using a sensitive enzyme immunoassay (EIA) or immunofluorescence assay (IFA) as a first test, followed by a western immunoblot assay for specimens yielding positive or equivocal results. The B. burgdorferi (IgG) MARBLOT Strip Test system, which ECO Laboratory performs, qualifies as the confirmation of the first test in later stages of infection. This test system is a Western blot assay for the qualitative detection of human IgG antibody to individual proteins of Borrelia burgdorferi in human serum.
ECO Laboratory will not report merely a positive or negative finding; our report will include all detectable antigen proteins with an image of the reactive strip available upon request.
