New at ArminLabs: The Borrelia miyamotoi EliSpot

In the past years, more and more Borrelia miyamotoi have been found in ticks (England, Germany, USA, amongst others) and related diseases have been documented at the same time.

  • it is the human pathogen of relapsing fever
  • an erythema migrans does typically not appear
    As of now, the analysis of the cellular activity against Borrelia miyamotoi is performed at ArminLabs by means of the certified EliSpot method.

  • it is highly specific, highly immunogenic, activity associated, as well as cross-reactive with the VlsE subtypes of Borrelia burgdorferi sensu stricto, Borrelia burgdorferi garinii, and Borrelia burgdorferi afzelii.

The suitability of the C6 ELISA in the early and late stage of a Lyme Borreliosis caused by European strains of Borrelia has been proved (Liang et al. 2000).
