Global Lyme Alliance is joining forces with Quidel Corporation heighten public awareness around Lyme disease

Lyme disease is a growing epidemic, with more than 476,000 reported new cases each year in the United States. Global Lyme Alliance (GLA) is excited to collaborate with Quidel Corporation and their Lyme Task Force Team to heighten public awareness around Lyme disease during Lyme Disease Awareness Month (in May) and beyond. Quidel is the nation’s leading developer of the only FDA-approved rapid point of care diagnostic Lyme disease test.

About Quidel’s Lyme Disease Test – Gets You Results in Minutes


Leading the way in Lyme disease testing is Quidel’s innovative Sofia® 2 Lyme FIA. The only FDA-approved rapid point of care test on the market provides the patient and their physician with indicative results within 15 minutes instead of days, which has historically been the norm. Performed in the privacy of a doctor’s office or local clinic, it is also the only test that can get results from a simple finger prick of blood. Patients seeking more information are encouraged to contact their private physician to find out more about the availability of this revolutionary new test in their area. Doctors interested in ordering the instrumentation and assay can get it here directly, or through their local distributor.

GLA and Quidel

As part of its partnership, Quidel serves as GLA’s Official Sponsor during Lyme Awareness Month and will partner on a series of educational PACE accredited webinars. The webinars will provide new information on various Lyme topics in an open discussion format, all designed to bring awareness to Lyme disease, along with rapid ways to diagnose Lyme, leading to prompt treatment. Additionally, Quidel will be a sponsor for The GLA Global Gala 2022, our premier fundraising event to be held this October.
