Re: New York State prohibits Igenex lyme test?
NY state has the most stringent requirements for testing of any other state. Why they're more conservative in this arena (when liberal in most others) I don't really know. They do allow the IGM/IGG Western blot, which is the main test you need, also the multiplex PCR. They don't allow the Bartonella FISH but you could have this done through BioReference lab. NYS allows most of the co-infections to be tested through Igenex.
