Lyme PCR Test - More Information
The Lyme PCR urine test, also known as a Lyme disease PCR test, checks for the presence of Borrelia spp DNA in the urine.
This Lyme PCR test uses a lab methodology known as real-time polymerase chain reaction. Polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR or PCR) is a process that takes small amounts of DNA and amplifies it to make it easier to detect. Using this methodology, it is easier to identify small amounts of Borrelia spp DNA.
