Why is it important to test for Borrelia Burgdorferi Infection?

Lyme Borreliosis is a common tick-borne infection which is caused by spiral bacteria of the genus Borrelia, which is spread mainly by ticks. The tick, whether it is infected on not with Borrelia, is heavily dependent on seasonal and geographical influences.

From 12 hours after the tick bite the Bb.s.l. subspecies (especially B. Burgdorferi sensu stricto, B. afzelii, B. garinii) are transmitted by the salivary gland into the stab wound. Peak levels of Borrelia excretion are reached approximately 72 hours after the tick bite.

Previously detection of Borrelia antigens in the tick could only be done by running a laborious, time consuming and expensive PCR in a specialised laboratory.

Early diagnostics of the sucking tick is important; now with FASTest BOR in Tick, it is possible to detect potential Borrelia antigens in ticks quickly, simply and reliably.

What are the symptoms of Lyme Borreliosis?

Clinical symptoms of this disease may not appear until a few weeks or months after the tick bite because of the long incubation time. Symptoms, however, can include

  • Fever
  • Lymphadenopathy
  • Inflammation of the muscles and joints
  • Lameness
