Sofia 2 Lyme FIA is the only CLIA-waived tier one Lyme test in the market. This means it is the only test that can be run in most physicians’ offices, since most offices are only licensed to run CLIA-waived tests. Sofia 2 Lime FIA is also the fastest Lyme test on the market because it uses a finger-stick whole blood sample. You don’t have to draw venous blood or spin it down to serum or plasma, a process which takes at least 30 to 45 minutes. Additionally, the test also delivers positive and negative results in 15 minutes—and can deliver a positive result in as few as three minutes.
