Basic or complete western blot?

I hope everyone is doing well. I would appreciate your advice about which Western Blot test to order from IgeneX. It seems there is a basic test and a complete WB. Can I get away with just ordering the basic test? I will ask the LLMD to order the co-infections when I see her in Dec. I have learned so much from all of you,and I am grateful. Very grateful.... Thanks again

Re: Basic or complete western blot?

Hi 4sons,
The way it worked when I ordered the kit was: I called and wanted the kit sent and asked the price. They said they include a price list with the kit. Do you have your kit already?
I would recommend at least the western blot IGG and IGM. It comes with a screening test as well. The cost was around $245.
Those tests will list the bands that everyone here talks about. I'm also waiting on co-infection tests until my llmd app. next week. good luck mc
