Multiplexed real-time PCR test for the simultaneous detection and identification of nine of the most common tick-borne pathogens.
The U.S. is experiencing an increase in infections from tick-borne diseases and a geographic expansion of tick-borne cases. There has been a noticeable increase in the percentage of tick species carrying multiple disease agents. This has driven the need for improved testing.
Evaluation of tick-borne agents can be very challenging and may rely on multiple methodologies. While access to serologic and microscopic methods are widespread, there are limited singleplex PCR tests available and no multiplex PCR tests.
