I had my babs titer and bart re-tested from Quest. Igenex had a positive IGG only (past infection) Quest was all negative.

Anyone get a positive from Quest? Am I finally getting there?

I was positive from Quest for:

Babesia WA-1 IGM
Lyme - Band 41 IGM

The above results caused my semi-LLMD to be alerted to Lyme and company, thus then ordered Igenex testing which was + all over the place. TS

My only concern is my IGG was negative (past infection) when we know I had babs, bart and lyme..tested positive very early on thru quest.

I should of had a negatibve IGM and positive IGG

Tickssuck-my initial test (3 years ago) was + band 41 and + babesia WA-1 also!

Starting to feel hopeful that the negatives, after 3 years, mean negative!

Negative at Quest.

Very positive at Igenex. 6 bands IgG, and 6 bands plus 1 IND on the IgM.

Lots of classic symptoms.

Negative at Quest. Positive elsewhere. My ILADS doctor won't use Quest.

Four negative tests from Quest for me. Positive IGM through IgeneX.

Good luck though!

With Quest I had Positive IGM band 23 and 41
Negative IGG
Also reactive EBV and CMV
Does this mean current new infection? I was bit 8/08 began treatment 6/09.

I still get confused on this one.

Thanks for all your replies-I only used Quest for the co-infection testing, forgot to check my lyme titer. My original test was 3 years ago...lol.
