New Laboratory method: DNA-PCR

DNA-PCR Test for Borrelia gets Increase in Speed and Sensitivity

From February 1st 2016, the BCA-lab will offer a new DNA-PCR test that delivers results faster to our clients and is more sensitive as compared to its predecessors.

The test will use blood or tissue/biopsy material to search for the most important species of Borrelia burgdorferi, including Borrelia miyamotoi and Bartonella spp.

The test for Borrelia is based on consecutive PCR reactions, which means that different pathogen genes can be detected on a highly specific and sensitive level. The repertoire of molecular biological detection at the BCA-lab is complemented by a PCR-based Bartonella-Assay.

The research team that developed this in-house PCR test method is led by Dr. Viktoria Krey (Molecular Biologist).

We are now able to produce results within 14 days of conducting the test; you can order the necessary test kits in our laboratory.
