    Anyone know anymore about this or how accurate it might be?

    he Nanotrap®, a new transformative biotechnology, will enable the first-of-its-kind, urine-based Lyme Antigen test that will provide the most sensitive detection of Lyme disease, at the earliest stages of the disease.

    Nanotrap was invented at George Mason University and developed under funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for biomarker discovery applications. With support from the NIH, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and the Commonwealth of Virginia, Ceres Nanoscience is focused on incorporating this technology into a range of innovative diagnostic products.

    Thanks @AndyPR & @TrixieStix

    Should be interesting to see how it plays out. Less expensive than Igenex.

    Here's another article from a few days ago.

    A technology backed by Bill Gates may revolutionize diagnostics for Lyme disease

    Ceres Nanosciences, a diagnostics company in Virginia, has developed the urine-based Nanotrap Lyme Antigen test for detecting Lyme disease. The revolutionary technology could help in detecting other diseases, like Ebola and tuberculosis, which is why the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has given over $1 million to the company for research. Just last week the company announced it plans to begin Series A funding for $9 million, $3 million of which it already has, to put toward funding a market release of the test. The funding will be used to help get FDA approval.
