Just wanted to clear this up regarding the difference in labs. These words came from someone else who did their research (I am not taking credit):
"One thing for sure is that there are more strains of lyme than most labs like Quest or Labcorp currently test for. Medicine is not a black and white science. There are a lot of gray areas. The experts know that there are over 30 strains of Bb.
Where Quest, Labcorp, etc. make there lyme probes they use rabbit antigens from 2 strains of Lyme.
IgeneX uses samples from human lyme patients from all over the United States and Europe and from patients who had early, middle and late stage lyme. Also, when a western blot is done there is an acidic gel that is used to separate out the bands. Most labs use a 10% gel. IgeneX uses a 12.5% gel so they get better separation of the bands.
Igenex was taken to U.S. court by the state of New York, the FDA and I believe the state of California because they were claiming that Igenex was putting out false positives. When this occurs the scrutiny that a lab is put under is microscopic. They were cleared of any and all charges of wrong doing."
