Outer membrane protein ospC is essential for the invasive strategy of the pathogenic spirochete responsible for Lyme disease. Detection of anti-OspC borreliacidal antibodies, especially IgM antibodies, in early Lyme borreliosis sera provides additional evidence that borreliacidal antibody detection may be useful for the serodiagnosis of early Lyme borreliosis.
For diagnosis of the disease in dogs, horses and occasionally in beef cattle.

SHIPPING AND STORAGE CONDITIONS
Proteins will be shipped with dry ice or lyophilized. Upon arrival (if liquid), or after reconstitution (if lyophilized), they should be stored at -20ºC to -80ºC. Avoid multiple freeze/thaw cycles
The protein will remain stable for four years if stored frozen
The protein is immunoreactive against seropositive individuals to Borreliosis or Lyme disease
