Point-of-care Lyme results as fast as a flu test

With a finger-stick whole blood patient sample, less than 1 minute of hands-on time and just 3-15 minutes of run time, Sofia 2 Lyme FIA delivers CLIA-waived tier-one Lyme results as fast as a flu test.

Have you ever had to wait days (or weeks) to tell your patient their Lyme result was negative?  How did that effect the timeliness of care you were able to provide?  How did that affect your patient’s satisfaction with their experience?

CDC researcher Alison Hinckley and her counterparts found that EIAs deliver a negative result over 88% of the time. If you’ve ever had to delay diagnosis and care while waiting for a Lyme result, you need a point-of-care Lyme test.  Sofia 2 Lyme and Sofia Lyme provide differentiated, tier-one IgM and IgG results in just 15 minutes (10 for Sofia Lyme), and can provide some positive* results in as few as three minutes when used with Sofia 2.  That’s as fast as a flu test.

Whatever the result, Sofia Lyme assays let you move on to next steps right away, without delay.

*Positive results must be confirmed by testing with a corresponding second-tier B. burgdorferi Western blot assay.
Sofia 2 and Sofia are intended for physician offices, professional and laboratory use.
