BABESIA

 

Babesia microti, Babesia duncani (WA1), Babesia divergens and Babesia sp. (MO1) are obligate intra-erythrocytic protozoans transmitted by tick vectors, causing flu-like symptoms as well as a malaria-like illness in humans.  All four agents can be transmitted by blood donor units from asymptomatic donors.


Our IFA slide antigens are all propagated in vitro using human type O erythrocytes to provide the cleanest and most sensitive reactivity possible.
