Gosh, I don't know the answer to this Szabo.

Isn't Arminlabs the one that most go to?

And I vaguely remember someone talking about Gartner Labs in Ravensburg..... Deutschland.

Armin Labs is where most people in Europe get tested.

/www.arminlabs.com/en/tests/elispot

Many of the LLND's here in Canada use Armin Labs.

Give them a call - I believe it's the Elispot test.

Thank you both, is the armin the one with the bands? I don’t even know the name of the one I had! I don’t want to pay another £700 and do it through my llmd

Borrelia EliSpot

1 Borrelia b. OSP-Mix 17 SI
1 Borrelia burgdorferi LFA-1 ! 2 SI

0-1 = negative

2-3 = weak positive

> 3 = positive

Western blot will have the individual band readouts
Lyme, Babesia, Bartonella. Symptoms began 5/2016, didn't start treatment until 9/2016. Slow but steady recovery.
