Is the Tick that bit me infected with Lyme?
Borrelia tick testing DNA (PCR BORPC tick).
Send in the tick that bit you and have the tick's DNA tested to see if the bite was dangerous. (You will receive after this order the material how to send it and the shipping material)
On average, 3 to 6 weeks after infection, the blood test will only show whether you have contracted Lyme disease through the tick bite, if you have the tick itself examined you will know immediately.
This test is not offered by health insurance.
Research on Borrelia Burgdorferi, causative agent of Lyme disease in the tick itself.
The DNA of the tick is examined by a PCR test. You need to send in the tick for this.
SENDING IN A TICK STEP-BY-STEP PLAN:
- Remove the tick as quickly as possible without twisting and damaging it. Do not squeeze the tick, otherwise the risk of infection may increase.
- Use a drawing spoon, drawing pen, drawing hook or a drawing card.
- Do not use oil, alcohol or fire, this increases the risk of contamination
- After removing the tick, disinfect the wound with 70% alcohol or iodine.
- Record the date and place of a tick bite.
- Put the tick in the tube that will be sent to you after you have ordered the test.
