TBE + ALSV (combination)
Analysis of the tick for tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) and Alongshan virus (ALSV) pathogens.
The TBE and ALSV combined analysis includes three analyses – on the one hand the verification that it really is a tick (Ixodes ricinus), and on the other hand the analysis of the tick for the two viral pathogens TBE and ALSV. All analyses are performed on RNA and DNA level by real-time PCR method.
The analysis takes a maximum of three working days after arrival of the tick.
