Category: Disease Testing

There are two panels one for blacklegged ticks (deer ticks, Ixodes scapularis) and one for Dog ticks (Dermacentor variabilis). Blacklegged ticks (deer ticks, Ixodes scapularis) – Borreliosis (Borrelia general species) – Lyme Disease (Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato, Borrelia mayonii) – Relapsing fever (Borrelia miyamotoi) – Anaplasmosis (Anaplasma phagocytophilum) – Babesiosis (Babesia microti) Dog ticks (Dermacentor variabilis) – Anaplasmosis (Anaplasma phagocytophilum) – Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever (Rickettsia rickettsii) – Spotted Fever rickettsiosis (Rickettsia parkeri) – Ehrlichiosis (Ehrlichia chaffeensis, Ehlrichia ewingii) – Tularemia (Francisella tularensis) * We do not test for Cat scratch fever and trench fever (Bartonella henselae), Babesia duncani, Babesia divergens at this time ** We cannot test for tick-borne viruses due to our collection method using citizen scientists. Because virus testing requires RNA extraction and is temperature sensitive.
