News about CSF diagnostics with SERION ELISA classic

We are proud to announce that in a recent study in the Netherlands our SERION ELISA classic Borrelia IgG and IgM tests demonstrated very good diagnostic performances.

 

This study was conducted by the Diakonessenhuis and the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment in the Netherlands (van Gorkom et al., 2018). In total, seven different test systems have been investigated, showing varying diagnostic sensitivities (ranging from 25-100%). For SERION ELISA classic Borrelia burgdorferi IgG and IgM a combined sensitivity of 100% was calculated for definite Lyme Neuroborreliosis (LNB) cases (n=12) based on CSF/serum samples for AI determination. The specificity was evaluated by analysing CSF/serum samples from other infectious diseases and non-infectious diseases and was 93% and 96%, respectively

Furthermore, we would like to inform you that since January 2019 the CSF application for our SERION ELISA classic Herpes Simplex Virus 1 IgG and Herpes Simplex Virus 2 IgG tests is available.
