Cpn testing


For anyone needing this information - blood testing for Chlamydia Pneumonia is no longer available in Ontario, Canada. To my knowledge, the most complete test is offered in Ausburg, Germany, as they offer the Elispot LTT in adition to IgG and IgA tests.

Chlamydia Pneumoniae antibodies

Chlam.pneum.-IgG-antibodies (ELISA)

Chlam.pneum.-IgA-antibodies (ELISA)

Chlamydia pneumoniae Elispot LTT

Unlike Igenex blood for Infectolab does not have to be refrigerated or shaken, however it must arrive in Germany by DHL within 48 hours. Have you blood drawn on Monday by an MD or ND then arrange pickup or take it to a DHL international shipping location to make sure it gets to Germany by Wednesday.

All paperwork, needles with syringes, with detailed instructions & DHL packaging is included with the testkit. The price for the DHL shipping is included with the price for testing. MD or ND has to sign off on this and the results will go directly to him/her.

Infecto lab contact:
Ms. Andrea Foag (I spoke with Andrea, she speaks fairly good English, she will send you the testkit at no charge)


011 49 821 455 0740

USA/worldwide contact:

(she will send the testkit to anyone requiring it worldwide = I spoke with her =she is very approachable and willing to mail me the test kit but it was already on its way to me from Germany:

Mia, I am sure that many people will find this page very useful..................................Sarah

Completed Stratton/Wheldon regime for aggressive secondary progressive MS in June 2007, after four years, three of which intermittent.   Still improving bit by bit and no relapses since finishing treatment.

Useful information... thank you. I am also in Ontario, Canada. they only do PCR test here now.

I sent my blood to IGenex for IgG and IgA.  Fortunately  it was a clear positive.

The cost, I think, was around $200 CDN .... how does that compare with the cost in Germany ?


their current price list in Euros is on page 10 of this document:


I got it off their clinic's website in Ausburg, Germany (also it was sent with my testkit)


the Chlamydia trachomatis Elispot LTT test they offer in Germany is unfortunately not yet available at IgeneX USA

very nice people at this lab and clinic


take good care everyone

they have a price list on line I think! If not if you email them they will provide one... That is what I done. The tests are ok price wise, I found the courier bill the expensive part of the bill!


The Greatest Risk of all is Not taking the Risk...

i actually used german laboratory for testing my father's blood samples. we used services of arminlabs laboratory, and the owner dr schwarzbach is very helpful in giving advices and suggestions. he formerly worked in infectolab as a manager, but now he runs a laboratory on his own. mrs andrea foag now works as his assistant in arminlabs. i believe they are even a bit cheaper than infectolab.

if there was no dr schwarzbach, i would never had the idea of performin a test for Cpn infection. They all speak english language, so none of you will have any problems contacting them.



Do you have any details of the spin-off of the Armin Labs? My impression was that Dr Nicolaus and Dr Schwarzbach were much partners at BCA/Infectolab, running the clinic, and the lab, respectively?
