Lyme borreliosis is a multisystem infection caused by the tickborne spirochete Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato1,2. Due to the extreme paucity of B. burgdorferi in pathological lesions and body fluids, culture and techniques for direct detection of spirochetal DNA may not be successful in the routine diagnosis of Lyme borreliosis. The measurement of B. burgdorferi–specific antibodies is a suitable method.

Use IDEIA Borrelia burgdorferi IgM Kit for detection of human serum IgM antibodies to Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato.

  • Simple—ready-to-use liquid reagents and concentrates make the assay easy to implement and run
  • Excellent sensitivity and specificity—high quality, well characterized antibodies used in the assay provide excellent sensitivity and specificity
  • Easy-to-read results

IDEIA Borrelia burgdorferi IgM Kit uses purified, native B. afzelii strain DK1 flagellum as test antigen. The flagellum is highly immunogenic and elicits an early, strong and persistent immune response3,4. Compared with the conventional and currently most widely used test antigen, which is based on whole cell extract of the spirochete, the purified, native flagellar antigen improves the diagnostic sensitivity and specificity of serological assays for Lyme borreliosis5,6. Furthermore, the use of flagellum as test antigen is appropriate in all geographical areas as the flagellum shows no significant variation between B. burgdorferi strains.
