Here is a news release about the new Igenex tests:
https://www.lymedisease.org/igenex-new-tests-lyme-disease/ I am not sure I can decipher what they are saying. It sounds like they no longer recommend the Western Blot for lyme. Instead they recommend the Immunoblot. Is that right? The other test is for tick borne relapsing fever, which is great.

It sounds like they are still using antibodies. Can't make out what is different about this test. My head hurts though...ouch.
