ArminLabs performs laboratory tests for chronic infections originating from tick-borne diseases.
In the complexity of tick-borne and opportunistic infections, we are specialized in T-cellular tests (EliSpot), B-cellular tests (IgA, IgM and IgG-antibodies), and NK cell tests (CD57, CD56) for several bacterial, viral, parasitic, and fungal infections.
The best-known tick-borne infection is named Lyme disease or Lyme Borreliosis, an infection by Borrelia burgdorferi after tick or insect bites.
Still, diagnostic tests for coinfections like Ehrlichia/Anaplasma, Rickettsia, Bartonella and Babesia play an increasingly important role in the diagnosis and treatment of patients after tick-bites. Laboratory tests for Chlamydia, Mycoplasma, Coxsackie-Virus, EBV, CMV, HSV, and HHV6 infections are essential in the complexity of multiple infections.
ArminLabs’ philosophy is not only based on performing and reporting laboratory test results. In addition, we help and assist clinicians in the interpretation of results, depending on symptoms and differential diagnosis. In their daily work with their patients, clinicians can best monitor their patients’ treatment and recovery process.Armin Schwarzbach MD PhD
