3. BCA/Infectolabs

BCA/Infectolabs – a lab in Germany which does an amazing array of different tests regarding Lyme and its various co-infections. An important test to consider is the CD57 test which is a test developed to show immune suppression in chronic Lyme cases. For instance, results of over 100 (using the German Lab criteria) is considered a healthy immune system, results below this show immunity problems caused by Lyme and treatment should be continued until this normalises to prevent relapse. Low CD57 results are more indicative of chronic Lyme and would not be considered suitable for a more recent infection. Details of the tests offered can be found here.
