Galaxy Diagnostics Launches the Most Sensitive Test Available for Direct Detection of Lyme Disease
Science Leader in the Testing of Flea and Tick Borne Illness Introduces the Nanotrap® Urine Test for Lyme Borreliosis
By: Galaxy Diagnostics, Inc.
Published data shows that the Nanotrap Urine Test is very effective for confirmation of early stage Lyme borreliosis in patients with EM rashes (24/24). Galaxy validation data (unpublished)
"The addition of the Nanotrap® test aligns with our mission to bring the most scientifically advanced sample enrichment technologies and diagnostic advances to the forefront of flea and tick borne disease", said Galaxy CEO Amanda Elam. "Lyme disease is the fastest growing tick-borne illness in the United States. We are committed to improving the standard of care around detection of these elusive, low abundance pathogens to ensure better patient care for millions globally."
Galaxy advocates for a new standard of care in Lyme Borreliosis testing and recommends a combination diagnostic protocol with Nanotrap® Urine test to confirm active infection and the CDC recommended TTT to detect the presence of antibodies.
