P0025 - Tickborne disease PCR panel detects and differentiates the
following tickborne pathogens using PCR protocols:
Vets frequently see generalized symptoms that could be caused by a
number of different tick-borne pathogens. Recommended treatments and
quarantine protocols differ among these pathogens, and some can be
quite expensive and stressful for animals and owners.
tick borne disease test panel is a powerful, cost-effective diagnostic
tool for use in these cases. Zoologix performs this panel using highly
specific, sensitive and fast PCR test protocols.
included in the panel are run from one blood sample, eliminating
multiple sampling requirements.
