    Simple fingerprick blood draw

    Fast, accurate results


Many tick-borne diseases look alike and present with similar symptoms, which is why testing for all of them must be considered.

The AcuDart At-Home Tick-Borne Disease Test Panel is the most comprehensive and accurate test panel available for all the major tick-borne diseases. It detects antibodies to Lyme disease, TBRF, Bartonellosis, and Babesiosis.

Collecting Your Blood

All we need are a few drops.

That's right! A few drops of blood is all we need to test for nine species of Lyme causing Borrelia. Our sample collection card is an alternative collection method, similar to an SST tube. Red blood cells are separated without a centrifuge, enabling the laboratory to perform tests on dry blood.


Is this methodology accurate? Yes! The test results have been cross-validated against standard finger prick and venous draws.

 AcuDart for Lyme disease is far Better than a Coin Flip

Common Lyme disease testing has a sensitivity of just above 50% because it detects only one Borrelia species, B. burgdorferi B31


The Acudart Lyme disease test detects antibodies to nine different species of borrelia: B. burgdorferi B31, B. burgdorferi 297, B. californiensis, B. mayonii, B. afzelii, B. garinii, B. spielmanii, B. bissettii, and B. valaisiana. The end result is sensitivity of 93%, which is far higher than any other Lyme test on the market.

AcuDart Detects Multiple Borrelia Species

B. burgdorferi B31

The B31 strain is the most well-known and extensively researched strain of B. burgdorferi.

B. afzelii

Borrelia afzelii is common in Europe. It is transmitted primarily by Ixodes ricinus ticks.

B. garinii

Borrelia garinii is common in Europe and Asia. Ixodes ricinus ticks are the primary vectors.

B. californiensis

Borrelia californiensis is a species of bacteria that was discovered in 2007.

B. spielmanii

Borrelia spielmanii was first isolated in 1993 in the Netherlands.

B. valaisiana

Borrelia valaisiana is common in Central Europe and can cause neuroborreliosis.

B. burgdorferi 297

Borrelia burgdorferi 297 is a human cerebrospinal fluid isolate and is a commonly used strain for studying ospC expression.

B. mayonii

Borrelia mayonii was first identified in a Minnesota resident in 2013. It can cause nausea, vomiting, and large, widespread rashes.

B. bissettii

Borrelia bissettii has been reported in patients in Europe. It can also be found in woodrats that are infected with B. burgdorferi s.s.

AcuDart Detects Multiple TBRF Borrelia Species

B. hermsii

The most common cause of TBRF is B. hermsii. It is spread by the soft-bodied tick Ornithodoros hermsi.

B. miyamotoi

B. miyamotoi can infect humans through the bite of several species of hard-shell Ixodes ticks, the same kind of ticks that spread B. burgdorferi, the causative bacterium of Lyme disease.

B. parkeri

B. parkeri is a relapsing fever agent that causes human infection. B. parkeri strain HR1 was isolated from Ornithodoros parkeri ticks.

B. turicatae

B. turicatae is a spirochete that causes TBRF in the tropics and subtropics of the United States. It is the primary cause of TBRF in the southwestern United States and is transmitted by the vector, Ornithodoros turicata.

AcuDart Detects Multiple Babesia Species

B. microti

B. microti is the main cause of  babesiosis, a malaria-like disease which also causes fever and hemolysis.

B. duncani

Human babesiosis caused by B. duncani has been associated with high parasite burden, severe pathology and death in multiple cases. 

AcuDart Detects Multiple Bartonella Species

B. henselae

B. henselae is a bacterium that causes cat scratch disease (CSD), also known as cat scratch fever.

B. quintana

B. quintana infection is most commonly associated with body louse infestations in areas of high population density and poor sanitation.

B. elizabethae

B. elizabethae causes disease in both humans and animals. Most commonly, it causes endocarditis, or inflammation of the inner layer of the heart tissue. 

B. vinsonii

B. vinsonii is a gram-negative bacteria that can infect mammals, including dogs and cats. It can cause a variety of diseases in dogs.

Who should get tested?

Lyme disease has been reported in all 50 states. If you live or have traveled to a state where Lyme disease infections are endemic, this increases your risk. Lyme disease can also occur in Europe and Asia, where Borrelia garinii and Borrelia afzelii are most commonly found.

What will my results tell me?

This test will tell you if you test positive for previous exposure to nine strains of Borrelia bacteria. Lyme disease is caused by infection from Borrelia bacteria, which are transmitted by bites from infected blacklegged ticks – or if you have traveled to Europe or Asia, it can be transmitted by other ticks.


In response to the infection, your body produces specific immunoglobulin M (IgM) and immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibodies. IgG antibodies are detectable about six weeks after the tick bite first occurs, and may be detected in one’s blood many years later.


If you test positive for this infectious disease, your test results – along with your travel history and symptoms – may indicate a Lyme infection that would be considered a diagnosis of Lyme disease.


Important Note: A positive test result is not a clinical diagnosis of Lyme disease. Diagnosing Lyme disease can only be done by a medical professional if you have Lyme disease symptoms and signs and a history of possible exposure to infected blacklegged ticks. If you test positive with our at-home Lyme disease testing option, you’ll have the opportunity to speak with a physician in our network—who will do a virtual consultation and may prescribe antibiotic treatment, if appropriate.

Do you accept health insurance as payment?

We don't accept insurance at this time. We work to keep our tests as affordable as possible and our test costs are generally lower than the costs incurred from a trip to a healthcare provider.
