On selected dates, The Parasite Clinic provides testing for tick-borne infections; Lyme-disease (Borrelia) & Co-infections; Bartonella, Babesia, Mycoplasma, Anaplasma, Ehrlichia & Chlamydia Pneumoniae (TWAR) in co-operation with The Hale Clinic, 4 Harley St, in London, UK. This highly accurate and thorough method of analysis for the identification of Lyme-disease with DualDur Dark-Field Microscopy is carried out through blood sampling performed by licensed nurses at our partners premises.
In this test, a home testkit will be provided for Parasite testing as well. (The Usual Suspects) – please see more here.
Our collaborating laboratory is world leading in the identification of tick-borne infections and provides a highly accurate and patented laboratory method; DualDur – Dark Field Microscopy, that also includes utilization of AI in the analysis and identification of Lyme-disease and Co-infections. The laboratory microscopic analysis can directly identify both the presence of the structure of the Borrelia bacteria (Spirochetes) as well as quantitatively determine the extent of the Lyme-disease (Borrelia infection). The microscopic laboratory analysis forms the basis of our testing for tick-borne infections and can be supplemented and further expanded with a blood test for the identification of occurring Borrelia antibodies (Western Blot). This enables us to provide the highest quality testing for tick-borne infections that not solely relies on the presence and identification of Borrelia antibodies. In addition to your test-result you will be provided with documentation from the Dark-Field Microscopy analysis performed on your samples with the identified occurring infections.
To increase the sensitivity of the microscopic analysis and to ensure the highest possible accuracy and reliability of the test-result an initial incubation of the blood sample takes place (to provide present bacteria optimal conditions to survive) followed by a concentration of the blood-sample. The DualDur Microscopic analysis for Borrelia infection has the following reliability: 93% Sensitivity and 89% Specificity
Add-on test; Borrelia antibodies
The Western-blot analysis identifies any species-specific produced antibodies (Borrelia) that your immune system has encountered. For those of you who are interested in an extended test for the identification of Borrelia antibodies, we kindly ask you to inform us that you want this add-on test in connection with the payment of your appointment for Borrelia & Co.infections – DualDur Microscopy in the section; order notes and we will arrange this for you (payment through Klarna, safe payment).
Western blot Antibody analysis for the identification of Borrelia antibodies has the following reliability: 96% clinically proven predictive value
In the event of a positive test result, you have the possibility to book a digital medical appointment through us with our collaborating physician for the treatment of established tick-born infections and parasitic infections infections; Dr. Wojciech Ozimek. You can find further information here, as well as on our product page.
