Phelix Phage Borrelia & Rickettsia Tests

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.

Data sheet
Do I need to prepay the test before receiving the kit?

No, we will send you an invoice once we receive your sample. All payment instructions are listed on the invoice. You can pay by wire transfer or credit card (VISA or Mastercard only). Please kindly note that checks are no longer accepted. The analysis report will be released only if the tests are paid.

What is the turnaround time for the tests?

Testing turnaround time is assay-dependent. Some results are available in 48h (like CD57 count, Phagotest, etc.), while some others need more time (like PCRs with sequencing confirmation). The results of analyses are delivered maximum 6 weeks after sample reception.
