Bartonella (Cat Scratch Disease)

The Bartonella ePCR™ single draw test platform is designed to detect active infections of all pathogenic bacteria in the genus Bartonella.  It is recommended for occupational screening of animal health professionals and diagnostic testing for symptomatic patients with risk of exposure. The ePCR test platform combines highly sensitive PCR and a proprietary enrichment step that grows the bacteria to detectable levels. These bacteria infect at very low levels and are, therefore, difficult to detect using conventional testing methods. More sensitive and specific testing supports a more accurate diagnosis for chronic conditions. When feasible, serial testing using the ePCR Triple Draw Test is recommended over the single draw to further increase sensitivity of the test by capturing Bartonella species as they cycle in and out of the bloodstream.
