Lyme disease, one of the most misdiagnosed, undiagnosed and hidden infections.
Don't let the name of this lab confuse you either, Lyme and co-infections can come from any blood sucking insect. Mosquitos, spiders, fleas and others are also able to infect.
It can also be passed from mother to baby in the womb, between sexual partners and also through other means which have the sharing of fluids. The likelihood of infection from any means is based solely on the health of your immune system and your innate ability to defend yourself from the infections, just like your body does with any pathogen.
How many of you have been told you have chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia or it's all in your head? Many Lyme sufferers have to eventually take things into their own hands if they want a proper diagnosis. Investing in a sensitive lab like this can finally give you the data you need to get pointed in the right direction.

Top reasons why people choose Farmacy with Vibrant America for Lyme testing over other labs:
1. An ultra-high-density protein microarray for accurate serum detection.
This means they have the most advanced technology for finding specific bacteria.
2. Number of species tested.
The Vibrant Immunochip is made from recombinant proteins of several species of Borrelia, not just from B31 used by other Western blot tests.
3. We check twice.
Vibrant has the most comprehensive antibody (indirect) and DNA (direct) test for detection of Lyme and co-infections.
The Vibrant Tickborne Diseases panel provides the earliest identification between different tickborne disease.
What does Tickborne 2.0 check for?I have two options to choose from when it comes to Lyme testing, this is the second option, checking for the most co-infections. Tickborne 2.0 tests for:
1. Borrelia strains (Lyme disease)
2. TBRF (Tick-borne relapsing fever)
3. Babesia strains (Lyme cioinfection)
4. Bartonella strains (Lyme coinfection)
5. Anaplasma (Lyme coinfection)
6. Ehrlichea (Lyme coinfection)
8. Powassan Virus

How do you do this test?
This is a dried blood spot kit (you can do it at home!). This measures antibody (IgG and IgM) responses to these infections. Note, this does not offer the PCR testing as well, only the blood draw offers that in conjunction with the IgG and IgM testing.
You will receive 2 cardboard cards with a total of 9 circles which will need a drop of blood in the middle of each circle, from a prick on your finger. Instructions for collection will also come with your lab kit.
If you would prefer the blood draw option ($150 more) please email Matt. Draw locations can be found here.
If you are on any steroids or other immunosuppressant drugs, they will inhibit your body's ability to produce antibodies (including those for Lyme and coinfections). It's recommended to do antibody testing (like the Tickborne Lyme testing) after being off those drugs for 6-8 weeks. Otherwise, you may receive false-negative results.
