- Tests and Panels
- Understanding the Test
We have a dedicated research and development team of tick-borne disease experts who are relentlessly focused and committed to developing the most precise and effective diagnostic tests for Lyme disease, Tick-Borne Relapsing Fever and other tick-borne diseases.
– First to identify Borrelia burgdorferi in ticks in California.
– First to identify Babesia in New York, Switzerland, and Australia, using our exclusive patented FISH technology.
We test more relevant strains of tick-borne pathogens than any other lab, even those pathogens that exhibit Lyme-like symptoms but may be due to a different tick-borne disease and require different treatment paths.
We are hands-on and developed our in-house testing criteria for Lyme disease and other tick-borne diseases, based on decades of evidence and validation studies. Most labs use Lyme disease testing criteria that was developed in 1994, when much less was known about the disease and its pathogens.
We arm our talented scientists the most cutting edge technology available to help enable them in finding new solutions that challenge the status quo of testing for Lyme and associated tick-borne diseases. This positions us at the forefront of providing the most comprehensive testing possible to aid physicians in diagnosis.
– First to introduce Relapsing Fever Western Blot testing.
– First to introduce comprehensive Lyme ImmunoBlot and TBRF ImmunoBlot testing
We are committed partners with other Lyme experts, Lyme groups and deeply dedicated to physician education.
IGeneX tests are based on the latest findings of Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses to provide the most complete and accurate results for diagnostic purposes.We test for more species than any other lab.
While all of us at IGeneX are experts in our respective disciplines, we also are real people who understand the very personal, real-life impact that Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses can have on patients and their loved ones. Everyone on our team is passionate about improving the accuracy and speed of diagnosing tick-borne diseases with more precise and advanced testing options and by training physicians to better understand tick-borne diseases and become Lyme disease literate.
