BABESIA

 

 

Babesia microti, Babesia duncani (WA1) and Babesia sp. (MO1) are obligate intra-erythrocytic protozoans transmitted by tick vectors, causing flu-like symptoms as well as a malaria-like illness.  All three agents can be transmitted by blood donor units from asymptomatic donors, but Babesia microti has caused the most clinical problems in this area.


Our Babesia microti  IFA slide antigen is propagated in vitro using human type O erythrocytes and this patented technique will be made available to other research laboratories.
