Phage Rickettsia qPCR (PhRick)
PHELIX PHAGE TEST: A Breakthrough way to detect intracellular bacteria, and an answer to non-diagnostic ill people.
Phages belong to the simplest and most primitive form of life (viruses). They are extraordinarily specific for the bacterial host that they infect to propagate. They can rapidly infect their host and insert its genetic material into their host. As a result, they produce large numbers of copies that can further infect (and in some specific cases decimate) the bacteria causing the infection. Most importantly, bacteriophages can have a killing capacity.PhRick: Request form from USA
