Lyme Tick Bite Self Test

Lyme disease is passed on to humans via ticks. Ticks are insects that live in forests and dunes, but possibly also in your backyard. These insects may be infected with a bacteria called Borrelia. This bacterium causes Lyme disease. Statistics indicate that one in five ticks is infected with this bacteria. Have you been bitten by a tick and want to know if you have Lyme disease? Then do the Lyme Tick Bites self-test from The Medical Tester.

– Easy to do
– Reliable (CE certified)
– Equal result
– Ordered on working days will be delivered tomorrow

Every year in the Netherlands 1 million Dutch people are bitten by a tick. Lyme disease can affect the nervous system and can also lead to serious neurological disorders. The chronic complaints are reduced in Lyme disease when you treat the disease at the earliest possible stage.

The Lyme Tick Bite self-test of The Tester can measure the presence of antibodies against Borrelia in the blood from 2 to 4 weeks after the tick bite. This period is also called the incubation period. The immune system starts producing antibodies that fight this bacterium after the incubation period has passed. So that is why you can test for the detection of these antibodies after the incubation time.

There may be inflammation and sometimes redness around the bite after the bite. This usually happens 3 to 10 days after the bite, but sometimes it can even occur several weeks and months after the bite. But in more than 50% of cases, a red circle does not appear even though you are infected with the Borrelia bacterium. It is therefore essential that you test yourself.

If you are interested in additional information, such as the instructions for use or reliability of the test, you can find this information at the beginning of this text under the heading “Instructions for use”, “Reliability”, and/or “Content of the test”.

On the next page you will find our entire offer.

Instructions

You use a lancet for a finger prick then a pipette to collect a double blood. The pipette is automatically filled with blood when it comes into contact with the drop of blood. Then apply the blood to the test cassette using the pipette. The blood will now sink to the bottom of the test plate, if this is the case, add 4 to 5 drops of the supplied liquid. The result can then be read within a minimum of 10 and a maximum of 15 minutes. The result is positive or negative.

The Lyme – Tick bite test from The Medical Tester tests for the IgM antibodies. When you are infected with the Borrelia bacterium, the immune system produces these specific IgM antibodies against the Borrelia bacterium. These antibodies bind to the Borrelia bacteria found and therefore circulate through the blood. The presence of these antibodies is demonstrated by means of this test.

The test can be performed after the incubation period, which is equivalent to 2 to 4 weeks after the tick bite, or if redness appears around the area where the tick has bitten. For a complete and extensive description, please refer to the package leaflet of the Lyme – Tick bite test. Read the package leaflet carefully before using the test.
