Borreliosis tick test
Analysis of the tick for Borrelia pathogens.
The Borrelia analysis includes two analyses – firstly, the verification that it really is a tick (Ixodes ricinus) and whether there are Borrelia bacteria in the stomach contents of the tick. Both analyses are performed on DNA level by real-time PCR method.
The analysis takes a maximum of three working days after the arrival of the tick.
