New iSpot Lyme Test

July25

Interesting. A little chatter has been going on in regards to the new iSpot test by Neuroscience for detecting Lyme disease. I don’t know a ton about it, but here are a few tidbits:

- iSpot Lyme test is a “Highly sensitive T Cell-based Lyme ELISpot Assay validated for the diagnosis of Lyme”
- Requires 2 yellow-top tubes of blood
- It has 94% Specificity
- It has 84% Sensitivity
- Turnaround: 5-7 Business days
- Samples run in triplicate.
- It can detect lyme-specific immune response within 7 days. Allow 14 days for the T Cells to develop.
- Approved by FDA in 2011 for tuberculosis
- Uses a Lyme antigen coctail of: DbpA, OspC, VlsE, P100
- Can’t tell if you’re currently infected or if it’s past infection.
- 3 weeks after stopping abx for re-testing to see how many T Cells are there compared to previous test.
