PCR detection of TBE / FSME pathogen directly from ticks

AID FSME TBEV PCR kit - sensitive detection of Tick Borne Encephalitis Virus RNA in ticks

Detection of Tick borne encephalitis pathogen directly from ticks

Tick borne encephalitis (TBE, german: Frühsommer Meningo-Enzephalitis (FSME)) is the most important virus disease transmitted by ticks in Europe. It is caused by a viral pathogen: Tick borne encephalitis virus, a member of flavivirus group, which is transmitted by the bit of the tick Ixodes ricinus.

AID FSME TBEV Kit enables sensitive detection of TBEV-RNA isolated from ticks.

Only a small part of tick population is carrying TBEV. Determination of virus status of a tick after a bit can be useful for avoiding unnecessary concerns.
