Rapid Tick Screen for Lyme Disease Bacteria by PCR
Testing for Lyme Disease is Simple and Affordable
This kit is designed to test ticks for the presence of the Lyme disease bacterium, Borrelia burgdorferi. Laboratory DNA testing provides rapid detection of the Lyme disease bacterium if it is present within the tick. Sample analysis can be performed the same day samples are received, if requested. PCR based, DNA analysis for tick-specific human pathogens has been developed at EMSL Analytical, Inc.
When And Why Do We Test Ticks
In summer months, ticks are very active and children spend more time outdoors or at summer camps. It is important to check children for the presence of ticks and for the signs and symptoms of tick bites. Be sure to search their hair, bodies and clothes, and submit removed ticks for tick pathogen testing. When a tick tests positive for the presence of a pathogen, those who have been bitten by the tick should consult with a medical professional for the appropriate treatment options.
Utilizing PCR-based DNA analysis, EMSL can analyze ticks for the presence of the pathogens that cause Lyme disease, babesiosis, and anaplasmosis. Years of experience coupled with advanced analytical techniques have positioned EMSL as one of the nation's leading tick pathogen testing providers.
