Why the GLD screen test

With the high level of inaccuracy of Lyme tests, we understand why you have been hesitant to screen for Lyme disease. We believe some of the key reasons for high number of false negatives from current diagnostics is due to:

  • The current testing is limited to very small number of North American strains of borrelia. Anyone infected with a strain not being tested will result in a false negative.
  • Focusing on the wrong surface proteins of borrelia in the assay. Many tests look for proteins that show borrelia is present, not just for proteins that cause Lyme infection.

The GLD, Lyme specific, test is designed to address the shortcomings of current tests.

    • Screen for multiple variants and species of Lyme disease causing bacteria in one affordable test!
    • Proteins used in GLD Test ONLY include immunologically relevant linear epitopes of multiple Lyme causing borrelia variants. GLD screens for surface proteins that actually cause Lyme infection.

It is screening for this diversity of targets that allows for reduced false negatives in the GLD Test making it a screening tool for your peace of mind.
