I am posting this question for anyone that might do testing for Borrellia 
antibodies in spinal fluid.  1.) How do you process csf for western 
blot?  2.) Are your samples diluted for testing as serum specimens are or 
are they run without dilutions?  3.)  What types of interpretations do 
you use? i.e. If you obtain an equivicol result on a non diluted specimen 
is that clinically significant?
Please respond to either this posting or e-mail any answers you might 
have directly to me at  jperrin at
                                        Thanks in advance.
