Quidel Corporation announced that it has received CE Mark to market Quidel's Sofia 2 Lyme+ FIA to be used with the Sofia 2 Fluorescent Immunoassay Analyzer for the rapid differential detection of human IgM and IgG antibodies to Borrelia burgdorferi, Borrelia garinii
, and Borrelia afzelii from serum and plasma specimens.

In Europe, Lyme Disease can also be the result of Borrelia afzelii and Borrelia garinii
infections which are typically transmitted by Ixodes ricinus.
They questioned the finding that "the Borrelia isolates were closely related to Borrelia burgdorferi, Borrelia garinii
, or Borrelia afzelii." Sapi and colleagues had used two B.
Borrelia burgdorferi sensu stricto (s.s.), Borrelia afzelii, and Borrelia garinii
are causative agents of human LB in Norway , and the prevalence of LB is monitored by the Norwegian Surveillance System for Communicable Diseases (MSIS).
They are Borrelia burgdorferi sensu stricto, Borrelia afzelii and Borrelia garinii
. They are very closely related and all cause a broadly similar disease process, although different species can be associated with different symptoms e.g.
burgdorferi sensu stricto, Borrelia garinii
and Borrelia afzelii.
In Europe Borrelia garinii
(72%), are isolated more frequently from cerebrospinal fluid than Borrelia afzelii (28%), and Borrelia burgdorferi sensu stricto [8,9, 31,32].
The target cells (Borrelia garinii
and Borrelia afzelii) in 1 X PBS (137 mmol/L NaCl, 2.7 mmol/L KCI, 4.3 mmol/L [Na.sub.2]HP[O.sub.4] x 7 [H.sub.2]O, 1.4 mmol/L K[H.sub.2]P[O.sub.4], pH 7.2) were provided by the Department of Biotechnology, University of Turku, Finland.
At the start of the project, researchers injected a European Lyme strain called Borrelia garinii
into six birds under constant conditions and eight under changing day lengths.

In addition to Lyme Disease in Sweden, Swedish researchers also discovered that sea birds in the Arctic region of Norway carry Ixodes uria ticks infected with Lyme Disease, specifically the Borrelia garinii
