Tick, Tock. New Test Tracks Lyme Disease Bacteria
Tick-borne diseases are hard to detect with accuracy in humans, horses, pets. Now a new test may help with Lyme disease infections.
The multiplex procedure can detect three different antibodies produced in response to the bacteria associated with Lyme disease using a single test on the sample, eliminating the need for separate tests. It also requires smaller samples and answers more questions about the disease.
