Looks like there will be a new addition to the Lyme testing options come May...It's called Tickplex and it is affiliated with ArminLabs.

Our technology is intended to tests for both early and late Lyme Disease and other tick-borne diseases. Our tests facilitate healthcare providers to test up to 20 tick-borne disease microbes against multiple antibody types that aids in pinpointing not only the causative agent for a patient’s illness but also the stage of illness, thus our tests are a multiplex and multi-functional diagnostic kits.

Furthermore, the kits are equipped very specific antigens to enable detection at a higher sensitivity than ever before. Lastly, Te?teds digital healthcare solution is intended to deliver processed results to clinicians in order to expedite convenience and ease.

Our vision is to establish our products as the standard for diagnosing tick-borne diseases so that patients no longer need to compromise with their quality of life and living standards. We truly believe if the patient can be tested the patient can be treated.

I wouldn't recommend doing this test. I've got my results back yesterday, but they cannot be true. So, it might be a waste of money. Probably it's better to wait for https://www.id-lyme.eu to finish their project.

I live in EU, and I've never travelled to zones where I could catch "Ehrlichia chaffeensis", "Babesia microti" or "Rickettsia akari" - they're positive in the results. Also, I have no idea how may I have IgM to Parvovirus B19 and Bartonella, because it's impossible that I've caught them lately.

https://www.columbia-lyme.org/bartonellosis says "the ability of Ixodes ticks to actually transmit B. henselae has not been specifically demonstrated" about "Babesia microti". And there seems to be evidence that ticks cannot transfer it to humans. How comes I am positive for it?

The quote from the link says, "In addition, B. henselae has been detected in the spinal fluid of patients co-infected with Borrelia burgdorferi, the agent of Lyme disease. However, the ability of Ixodes ticks to actually transmit B. henselae has not been specifically demonstrated." I'm confused about where Babesia microti comes into it? Just because something has not been specifically demonstrated does not mean it doesn't happen.

Sorry, I had B. henselae in my mind. Anyway, other facts haven't been answered by ArminLabs yet. I really suggest not to do the tests because of the things mentioned above. IgM, and strains not available in EU at all. This is not possible at all, with they false positive rate. These are clearly false positives.

Traditionally, a positive IgM test would mean that you may have been infected with a microbe recently. However, given the evidence that tick-borne disease patients may suffer from an immune dysfunction, the traditional rules of how an immune system works do not apply. In practice this may mean that seroconversion for certain immune responses never changed from IgM to IgG. Recent research published in Nature Scientific Reports will comprehensively explain the prevelance of multiple microbes in tick-borne disease individuals and associated immune dysfunction.
