Infectious disease serology / Immunology

Our main focus in the Infectious Diseases department is detecting antigens of certain pathogens and identifying antibodies against these pathogens. Our Laboratory Medicine team provides comprehensive serological diagnostic services by performing a broad range of analyses.

Range of analyses

  • Serology: acute infections, immunity (vaccination protection), travel-related diseases, reactivation of infections
  • TB: QuantiFERON test
  • Rheumatic disorders
  • Autoimmunity
  • Vasculitides
  • Organ-specific antibodies
  • Coeliac disease
  • Allergy
  • Onconeural antibodies and anti-ganglioside antibodies
  • Veterinary infections


Lyme disease

The serological diagnosis of Lyme disease is extremely difficult and complex. We evaluated the methods we used with clinically validated patient sera of the individual disease stages (erythema migrans, arthritis, acrodermatitis and healthy individuals).


Diagnostic strategies

  • Screening: ELISA-IgG und -IgM
  • Confirmation test: strip immunoblot with purified native and recombinant antigens
  • Follow-up checks: concurrent approach of the test sample (free of charge).
  • Neuroborreliosis: CSF/serum index measurement
