A new test for Lyme disease can be performed immediately in a doctor’s office, avoiding the delay of sending samples to a lab and potentially speeding up the treatment of the tick-borne illness. The test, approved in February by the FDA, is manufactured by Chembio Diagnostic Systems in Medford, N.Y. The test has been shown to correctly diagnose Lyme in 72% to 95% of all cases. It has a low rate of false positive results; however, the CDC recommends that a positive result be confirmed with laboratory tests.
