Bartonella commonly co-infects Lyme patients but has been notoriously difficult to diagnose with lab tests. The newly developed Bartonella Immunoblot is proven to be the most accurate serological test available and can also identify, in most cases, which species are causing the infection. This is especially important in chronic Lyme because it is believed that many may be harboring a previously hidden Bartonella infection.
