IMUGEN, Inc. is a clinical laboratory located in Norwood, MA with over 20 years of experience in the development and performance of specialized testing of clinical specimens for tickborne diseases.

Accurate diagnosis of tick-borne infections may often be perplexing due to complex clinical presentations and limitations of commonly available commercial test kits. Complications may be severe if there is a misdiagnosis. Understanding these infections requires clinical experience and excellent laboratory support.

IMUGEN's goal is to provide testing that truly services the needs of the clinicians without encouraging over utilization of tick-borne disease testing.


Ticks Tested by Imugen: Ixodes scapularis

IMUGEN provides PCR testing of these ticks to detect Lyme disease spirochetes and the parasite causing Babesiosis. Since only these ticks carry these agents, testing is only performed on Deer ticks.
