The DNA ConneXions® Lyme Disease Test
identifies four different genes that are found in Borrelia burgdorferi, the most common cause of Lyme disease in the United States, and ten common Lyme disease vector born co-infectors and other organisms including Borrelia recurrentis, Borrelia miyamotoi, Babesia microti, Babesia divergens, Babesia duncani, Bartonella bacilliformis, Ehrlichia chaffeensis, Bartonella henselae, Bartonella quintana, and Anaplasma phagocytophilum.
Positive detection of Lyme co-infectors indicates likely infection with the Lyme spirochete as well.
A positive PCR result from the DNA ConneXions® Lyme Disease Test indicates the presence of DNA from B. burgdorferi and/or other co-infectors. A negative result does not prove a patient is not infected with a tick-borne infection, rather it indicates the absence of detectable Lyme and/or other tick borne co-infections. A patient’s ability to fight the disease, stage of infection, and timing of courses of antibiotics are only some of the factors that may affect the detectability of the spirochetes DNA.
The DNA ConneXions® Lyme Disease Test detects the causative agent of Lyme Disease, Borrelia burgdorferi, in addition to 10 other common vector borne pathogens.
This test requires a urine sample. Learn more about our Lyme Disease Test and watch our instructional collection sample video here.
