Description

Sampling

On the selected date, The Parasite Clinic provides testing for tick-borne infections; Lyme-disease (Borrelia) & Co-infections; Bartonella, Babesia, Mycoplasma, Anaplasma, Ehrlichia etc in co-operation with our partner clinic in the 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. An additional Bozsik Western Blot for 30 antibodies is added to the analysis. This test is roughly 50% more sensitive than regular Western Blot tests for Lyme antibodies. There is alos a Mold test included, with antibodies for Aspergillus Spp as well as for the Antigen Galactomannan.

The analysis

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

Borrelia antibodies

The Western-blot analysis identifies 30 different antibodies for Borrelia (15 IgG + 15 IgM).

Western blot Antibody analysis for the identification of Borrelia antibodies has the following reliability: 96% clinically proven predictive value

Mold

Test for antibodies for Aspergillus spp as well as for Galactomonnan, another marker for mold exposure.
