About the Test
Lyme disease is a bacterial infection spread through the bite of blacklegged ticks, which are commonly called deer ticks. Ticks usually acquire Borrelia burgdorferi bacteria by biting infected animals, such as deer and small rodents. For Lyme disease to be transmitted, an infected tick needs to be attached to the host for 36 to 48 hours.

Our test follows CDC recommended 2-step testing process for Lyme disease. Both steps use the same blood sample for testing. Your sample measures the levels of IgM and IgG antibodies produced in the blood in response to Borrelia burgdorferi bacteria that cause Lyme disease. If your initial test results are positive, a second test is done to confirm results.
