Hm. Apparently Igenex Australia does an 'Australian test panel' which looks for bands associated more with European strains of borrelia. Borrelia garnii, borrelia afzelii. http://www.lymeaustralia.com/igenex-pathology-lab.html There seems to be a little more sensitivity involved when testing assays for these strains, if i am making the below abstract out correctly. Performance of United States serologic assays in the diagnosis of Lyme borreliosis acquired in Europe. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23592827 RESULTS: For the detection of European-acquired infection, conventional 2-tiered testing (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay [ELISA] followed by immunoblotting) using US assays had an overall sensitivity and specificity of 52% and 100%, compared with 81% (P = .0007) and 99% (P = 1.00) using analogous European tests. The sensitivity of a US C6 ELISA used as a stand-alone test (88% overall) was statistically comparable to that of conventional 2-tiered testing using European tests (P = .47) and was 100% specific. Similarly, an alternative 2-tiered algorithm using a standard US ELISA followed by a C6 ELISA was comparably sensitive (84% overall) compared with conventional 2-tiered testing using European assays (P = .82), and specificity remained 100%. Infectolabs of Germany also tests for these European bands.
