This test is used to detect the presence of infection of Borrelia burgdorferi (an infectious bacteria). It detects the antibodies produced by the immune system against the bacteria and is generally used as a confirmatory test for the presence of Lyme disease. Two types of antibodies (IgG and IgM) are detected through this test to detect the presence of initial or previous infection. The common symptoms of this disease are pain in muscles, joints and head, fatigue, blue rash, fever and chills, stiffness of neck and weakness in arms and facial muscles.
