Care Plus Lyme Disease Tick Test Kit

Description

Care Plus Lyme Disease Tick Test Kit is a simple single use test to help determine the presence (or not) of the Borrelia bacterium – the cause of Lyme Disease.

The test works in a similar fashion to a pregnancy test – no blood or other fluids are required from the person bitten, it is the tick itself that is tested for the bacteria. To complete a test one crushes the tick (or ticks) in the test tube with a little of the fluid, a few drops of the fluid are then dropped onto the test cassette and it will then flow to the test lines. One line means the test is completed, two lines means that borrelia bacteria has been detected. The full test takes around 20 minutes to complete – and more than one tick can be tested at the same time if required.

It is important to note that just because a tick is carrying the bacteria this does not automatically mean that it has been passed on to its victim. However with any positive test, or under any circumstances where there is reason for concern, Care Plus recommend that contact is made with a doctor as soon as possible.

Very few (if any) tests of this nature are 100% reliable, however, the Care Plus Tick Test has been shown to be 96.55% sensitive (infected ticks give a positive result) and 90.48% specific (non-infected ticks give a negative result).
