Following the two-tier test algorithm proposed by the CDC for assessment of exposure to B. burgdorferi during early- and late-stage disease, both EIA IgM and IgG antibody responses to B. burgdorferi in human serum, are confirmed using an immunoblot (IB) method where whole-cell sonicate (WCS) B. burgdorferi antigens are utilized in identifying B. burgdorferi specific antigen binding reactivity. There are multiple criteria for interpreting Lyme immunoblots. The CDC recommends that at least 2 of 3 IgM bands (23, 39, or 41 kDa) must be present for interpretation of an IgM positive blot. For interpretation of an IgG positive blot, at least 5 of 10 IgG bands (18, 23, 28, 30, 39, 41, 45, 58, 66, or 93kDa) must be present. Only positive and negative interpretations are reported.

Notes
Request #7711CB for report with reactive immunoblot bands. Sera from individuals, with other pathogenic spirochetal diseases such as syphilis, yaws, pinta, leptospirosis, relapsing fever and periodontal disease may give false positive results. Individuals with connective tissue autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus erythromatosis, and individuals with anti-nuclear antibody may also give false postive results. Individuals with other bacterial and viral infections such as Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, Epstein-Barr Virus, and cytomegalovirus may also have antibodies which cross-react with B. burgdorferi.
