DNA Connexions performs targeted genetic testing to identify inherent conditions and foreign DNA and provide necessary information to healthcare providers for treatment. Foreign bacterial, viral and fungal and parasitic microbes can be identified from root canal, cavitation, implants and other oral samples. DNA Connexions offers a Lyme panel that checks for the DNA of the organisms. The test uses primers which are specific for the genes of the Borrelia burgdorferi flagella, outer surface protein A, B and C. A positive test result for any of these 4 genes indicates the presence of the Lyme organism. Testing of common Lyme co-infectors (other tick-transmitted organisms) indicates likely infection with the Lyme spirochete as well. DNA Connexions currently tests for Babesia divergens, Babesia duncani, Babesia microti, Bartonella bacilliformis, Bartonella henselae, Bartonella quintana, Borrelia miyamotoi, Borrelia recurrentis, and Ehrlichia chaffeensis and Anaplasma phagocytophilum.
