Lyme Disease (elisa) Blood Test

About this test

Lyme disease is caused by the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi which is transmitted to humans through the bite of infected ticks. 

About the size of a pinhead, these ticks are found in woodland and around heathland. If you have been bitten by a tick and haven't removed it within a couple of days, you may be at risk from Lyme disease. A common early sign of infection is a circular, expanding rash which has the appearance of a bull's eye, but this rash doesn't occur in all cases. If left untreated the infection can spread to your joints, heart and even the nervous system.

This blood test (the ELISA test) can help to confirm the disease, but it is known for producing false positive results in people with glandular fever, rheumatoid arthritis and other autoimmune conditions. A positive ELISA result would normally be followed with an Immunoblot confirmation test.

Important: A Lyme disease test can be negative if taken too soon after the infection date. If you are free of symptoms please wait for at least 6 weeks after the date you suspect you were bitten or were in an environment where you could have been infected. If you are experiencing symptoms then we recommend testing as soon as possible.
