Borrelia + TBE (combination)
Analysis of the tick for Borrelia and TBE (Tick-borne encephalitis) pathogens.
The Borrelia and TBE combined analysis includes three analyses – on the one hand the verification that it really is a tick (Ixodes ricinus), as well as the analysis of the stomach contents of the tick for Borrelia bacteria and the analysis of whether TBE viruses are present in the saliva of the tick. All analyses are performed on RNA and DNA level by real-time PCR method.
The analysis takes a maximum of three working days after the arrival of the tick.
