Babesia is a tiny parasite that infects your red blood cells. Infection with Babesia is called babesiosis. The parasitic infection is usually transmitted by a tick bite. Babesiosis often occurs at the same time as Lyme disease. The tick that carries the Lyme bacteria can also be infected with the Babesia parasite.
This kit uses fluorescence probe PCR (RT-PCR) method to detect the deserved gene of Babesia, which is helpful for diagnosis, monitoring and epidemiological investigation of Babesia.
