The panel of tick-borne infections – basic – quality Real-Time PCR (RUO/701)

Molecular diagnostics which is based on PCR methods (e.g. Real Time - PCR) is a sensitive test, whose primary limitation is difficulty in appropriate material selection. According to the recommendations the biopsy of skin lesions is the best material to make this test but analysis of systemic fluids such as: urine, blood or cerebrospinal fluid is also accepted. It should be remembered, however, that probability of bacteria detecting in systemic fluids is lower due to less frequent presence of this pathogen in the analyzed sample.

CB DNA test services include of all RUO (Research Use Only) tests which are designed only for the research purposes. Result of this tests is only for informational purposes and does not have a diagnostic test status.
