Lyme Disease PCR Blood Test

The Lyme Disease PCR Blood Test aids in diagnosing Lyme Disease. This test detects the genetic composition of the causative bacteria of the Lyme Disease.

Results for this test are qualitative and come back positive or negative.

PCR testing is sensitive to a high degree and may be able to detect the presence of Lyme Disease faster than an antibody test would.

As a screening, PCR test can come out false positive, so the result would still need to be confirmed with a  Lyme Disease Immunoblot Test. A PCR test can be useful for patient taking antibiotic treatment for Lyme Disease but are still suffering symptoms. In this situation, a PCR test may be able to detect an active infection with more accuracy than an antibody test would.

This Test is designed to detect Borrelia Burgdorferi Sensu Stricto, the bacterial type associated with Lyme Disease in the United States.

Lyme Disease is caused by an infection due to contact with Borrelia burgdorferi.

Untreated Lyme Disease causes joint pain, arms and hands numbness, facial paralysis, Meningitis, heart problems or memory problems.

Results for Lyme Disease PCR Blood Test are typically returned within 7-10 business days. We take every precaution to ensure you receive your results on time.
