This simple to use test will give a certified lab report looking for the presence of the bacteria Borrelia burgdorferi in ticks removed from humans or animals. Infection from Borrelia burgdorferi can lead to Lyme Disease which in the early weeks after a bite can be very difficult to diagnose. A positive test can be taken to a GP or specialist to get crucial antibiotic treatment quickly.
