ELISA format with recombinant Borrelia antigens for detection of IgG and IgM antibodies to Borrelia burgdorferi sensu stricto, Borrelia afzelii, and Borrelia garinii.
The bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi, a spirochete, is responsible for Lyme borreliosis, a disease transmitted by ticks. Lyme borreliosis is a multisystemic disease with diverse symptoms.
Genetically engineered antigens are used in the recomWell Borrelia kits. In contrast to using lysates of Borrelia burgdorferi cells, the recombinant antigens can be presented in varied concentrations so that all Borreliaburgdorferi antigens are well-represented. This applies especially to the OspC and the VlsE antigens.
In addition, recomWell Borrelia IgG and recomWell Borrelia IgM kits include antigens of threeBorrelia species: Borrelia burgdorferi sensu stricto, Borrelia garinii, and Borrelia afzelii.
