I found my lyme testing from back in Nov. it was ran through lab Corp and have no idea if it was the western blot or elisa?

tested negative and it shows normal range 0.00-0.90 and mine was less than 0.91.

just trying to determine if this would indicate the elisa or western blot?

thanks

That would be the ELISA. The WB doesn't have a range. That would just show positive or negative or list the bands individually as positive, negative or indeterminate like you see below.

My test from Lab Corp was labeled "Western Blot Reflex" and I was given the same results as yours. I've often wondered if the "Reflex" means it's a different test than a Western Blot.

Either way, IMHO, Lab Corp results aren't worth a .....

I'm assuming this is the worst test when it comes to looking for late or chronic lyme?
