Tip: Even if the Tick Test indicates a negative result, always visit your doctor if a red ring (Erythema migrans) develops around the bite area or if you experience any symptoms. The red area appears within three weeks in 35-50% of cases. It spreads out slowly, fades in the centre and then disappears.

Tick Test Instructions


Step 1. Place the removed tick inside the tube and add 4-5 drops of liquid. If you remove multiple ticks from one person, you can examine them simultaneously in a single test. 

Step 2. Crush the tick (or ticks) with the wooden stick. Crush the tick carefully, as the Borrelia bacteria is found in the tick's intestines. 

Step 3. Close the tube and shake it vigorously. 

Step 4. Use the pipette to add 3-4 drops on the cassette’s test opening. The fluid will then flow towards the test lines. Note: do not transfer any parts of the tick itself, as these can block the test field.

Step 5. The test result will be visible between 20 and 30 minutes later. The maximum readout time is 30 minutes. All results hereafter are invalid.


Negative test result

1. A line appears in the control area (C). This means that the test has been carried out correctly. If no line appears in the control area (C), the test result is invalid and the test procedure must be repeated using a new test.

2. No line appears in the test area (T). This means that no Borrelia bacteria have been found in the tick.


Positive test result 

1. A line appears in the control area (C). This means that the test has been carried out correctly. If no line appears in the control area (C), the test result is invalid and the test procedure must be repeated using a new test.

2. A line appears in the test area (T). This means that Borrelia bacteria have been found in the tick. In the event of a positive result, we recommend you consult your doctor immediately.


 Take note: the intensity of the lines may vary, but this does not change the test result in any way.
