TRANSFORMING TICK-BORNE DISEASE TESTING
WHY & WHAT IS TICKPLEX ?
Tick-borne diseases are not limited to just Lyme disease. About 85 % of individuals with Lyme disease may also suffer from other tick-borne disease infections like Babesiosis, Bartonellosis, and more.
We offer an excellent diagnostic tool that can test for several tick-borne disease infections and multiple disease stages at the same time. The test is equipped with the state-of-the-art knowledge to help patients get a proper diagnosis.
TICKPLEX IS UNIQUE
Did you know that Borrelia can change from a corkscrew structure to a circular form in response its to unfavourable environmental conditions? As a result, Borrelia is able to avoid detection from the patient's immune system.
Our test is the only tick-borne disease diagnostic kit in the world that can test for different species of Borrelia's corkscrew structures (or spirochetes) and its circular forms (or persistent form).
TICKPLEX IS RELIABLE
Our test is an indirect enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) that is CE and IVD marked for professional use in clinical laboratory. Our manufacturing processes are ISO 13485:2016 certified.
We have validated the clinical relevance for all proteins in our test using 432 characterized tick-borne disease specimens. The test offers unprecedented accuracy, convenience, and cost-effectiveness to clinical laboratories and patients (Garg et al. 2018).
BASIC is a Lyme disease focused diagnostic test that can test for Borrelia afzelii, Borrelia burgdorferi, and Borrelia garinii spirochete and persistent forms. It is equipped to test for IgM and IgG antibodies.
An astounding three out of four patients with Lyme disease symptoms that are diagnosed negative for the disease following traditional criteria may respond to Borrelia persistent forms (Garg et al. 2018).
PLUS includes all features included in BASIC, tick-borne disease co-infections such as Babesia microti, Bartonella henselae, Ehrlichia chaffensis, Rickettsia akari, and opportunistic infections such as Coxsackievirus, Epstein-Barr virus, Human Parvovirus B19, Mycoplasma fermentans, and Mycoplasma pneumoniae.
