    Has anyone had this? Know anything about it:
    Per Carol Savage:
    Lyme Quantitative C6 Peptide Test

    The Lyme C6- Peptide ELISA Test is the newest entry in Lyme disease testing accuracy. The Lyme C6 Peptide ELISA is very different than the earlier Lyme ELISA test. It was developed at Tulane University and available since 2000.

    It can confirm exposure in more that 60% of patients. The chance of a false positive result in under 1%.
    While this new test when positive can confirm that an individual is infected with Lyme disease, unfortunately there is still no test clinically available that when negative proves that an individual does NOT have Lyme disease.
    "Available since 2000" doesn't sound that new...

    So what's the chance of a false negative?
