DualDur reagent and method was developed by a number of laboratory specialists to provide a reliable diagnosis for Lyme borreliosis.
The basic idea, dark-field microscopy has been used to investigate other spirochetes for several decades.
However, it was not suitable to investigate Borrelia in untreated fresh blood. It was a long way to work out the reagent and method until it became a diagnostic method.
We carried out 40,000 investigations with DualDur, while carefully observing and recording clinical symptoms, and performing 110,000 serological tests to back up the diagnosis.
DualDur is still being used in standard laboratory diagnostics as a complementary method, and clinical testing will be carried out soon.
