AID veterinary LymeSpot EliSpot Assay

Detection of Borrelia-specific effector T cells

AID LymeSpot equine and LymeSpot canine EliSpot assays

Diagnosis of Borreliosis of animals like horse and dog is challenging due to the unspecific clinical symptoms. Often, long-term exclusion diagnostics are the only possibility to detect Borrelia-related diseases.

Fundamentally, a positive Borrelia antibody test is separately no indicator for a therapy or reflects the clinical manifestations. In this case, detection of Borrelia-specific effector T cells can provide further diagnostic assistance.

The AID LymeSpot equine and LymeSpot kit canine detect and measure the Interferon-y expression of Borrelia-specific effector T cells.
