LYME DISEASE TEST
The DNA ConneXions® Lyme Disease Test tests for four different genes that are found in Borrelia burgdorferi, the most common cause of Lyme disease in the United States, and ten common Lyme disease vector born co-infectors and other organisms including Borrelia recurrentis, Borrelia miyamotoi, Babesia microti, Babesia divergens, Babesia duncani, Bartonella bacilliformis, Ehrlichia chaffeensis, Bartonella henselae, Bartonella quintana, and Anaplasma phagocytophilum.
Positive detection of Lyme co-infectors indicates likely infection with the Lyme spirochete as well.
Early detection can mean a better response to treatment.
You already know that you are your own best advocate when it comes to your health. Learning what to look for if you aren’t feeling quite right and determining whether or not symptoms could be related to the bites of these tiny predators is critical!

Knowledge is Power
A positive PCR result from the DNA ConneXions Lyme Disease Test 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. A patients ability to fight the disease, stage of infection, and timing of courses of antibiotics are only some of the factors that may affect the detectability of the spirochetes DNA.
