Description


The Lyme panel tests for 4 different genes that are found in Borrelia burgdorferi, the most common cause of Lyme disease, and 8 common Lyme disease co-infectors including: Babesia microti, Babesia divergens, Babesia duncani, Bartonella bacilliformis, Bartonella henselae, Bartonella quintanta, Borrelia miyamotoi, Borrelia recurrentis, Ehrlichia chaffensis and Anaplasma phagocytophilum.

Testing of Lyme co-infectors (other tick-transmitted organisms) indicates likely infection with the Lyme spirochete as well.

A positive PCR result indicates the presence of DNA from B. burgdorferi and/or other co-infectors. A negative result does not prove a patient is not infected with a tick borne infection, rather it indicates the absence of detectable Lyme and/or other tick borne co-infections, which may be due to the patients ability to fight the disease, timing of courses of antibiotics, etc.
