Infection Panel Test FAQ
What is checked in the Infection Panel?
Why is this panel important?
Giardia lamblia is a parasite that lives inside the intestines. Infection occurs through drinking or eating contaminated food or water, often while camping or backpacking. Symptoms from infection might be diarrhea followed by constipation, gas or cramping.
Helicobacter pylori, also known as H. pylor, is a major cause of stomach ulcers or gastritis. Stool testing can help identify an infection.
Lyme disease results from an infection from Borrelia burgdorferi transmitted by a tick. This test screens your blood for Lyme Disease antibodies. If the antibody screen is Equivocal or Positive, this test will also run an Immunoblot to look for IgG and IgM antibodies to confirm the initial screen.
Parasites tested on the blood include malarial, Babesia and other blood parasites. Parasites tested in the stool include protozoans, oocysts, helminths and larvae.
