Hi, decided to go to Germany for treatment. I've been there once before. The clinic wants me to take antibody tests for the three infections, and there will be sent a testkit to me. As these tests are quite expensive, I wonder if any of you know if these can be taken cheaper somewhere else? It's this place: dedimed.com

Analyses for infection by Borrelia:

18 parameters for borrelia--infection, total price is about 737€. We can divide these 18 parameters in two parts: 12 so-called IFTs ( high sensititvity), costs about 415 €, and 6 immunoblots, price about 320 €

Babesia : 3 tests for together about 107 € and

Bartonella henselae + quintana , price ca 136 €

Thanks!

Tommy

I live in Norway btw..

I've not heard of that lab.

The one that most LLMD's in Europe use is ArminLab.
I know some Canadian Dr.'s also use ArminLab - instead of Igenex.


Do you have the choice? I don't know what ArminLabs costs....but I think that's the option I would choose.

What are those prices in $$?

I have Arminlabs info Girlie don't know if you want me to post it somewhere else.

Armin labs cost of testing depends on who is ordering the test. If your physician orders it you get a 24% discount.

Discounted current pricelist of tests:

Borrelia Elispot 141.44 €
Borrelia Miyamotoi Elispot 65.02 €
Borrelia IgG/ IgM - ELISA 46.92 €
Borrelia c6 ELISA 34.19 €
Borrelia IgG/ IgM SeraSpot 107.24 €
Borrelia DNA-PCR 113.96 €

Multiply by 1.56 for the approximate CAD prices.

Thanks for posting the prices, Glascis.

The ArminLabs is well known here in BC...some of the LLND's prefer it.

my previous LLND uses both Igenex and Armin.
