Quick detection of borrelia in ticks, allowing for rapid treatment.
Lyme disease (lyme borreliosis) and TBE (tick-borne encephalitis) are the most common tick-borne diseases. TBE is caused by viruses that can be inoculated against. However, there is currently no possible vaccination against borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato, the pathogen that causes Lyme disease. Only early diagnosis and the timely commencement of antibiotic therapy can assist in the reduction of long-term effects and complications.
Thanks to new immunological techniques for the direct testing of borrelia in ticks, you can now get a quick diagnosis and thus, start patient treatment as soon as possible.
