Tick borne Lyme disease is the fastest growing vector borne disease in the US, leading to more than 300,000 infections in the US per year.  Current tests for Lyme disease as well as other tick borne illnesses, such Babesiosis, Ehlichiosis, and Anaplasmosis, have a host of problems including high false negative rates, and the inability to detect infection until weeks after exposure.  Ionica Sciences is creating a new rapid, high sensitivity detection assays that will be detect Lyme disease and other tick borne infections from a single drop of blood.
