What we do

We at PZM Diagnostics LLC, are testing the blood from potential Crohn’s patients for the presence of MAP by three separate methods: blood culture, serology and molecular identification. We will first culture for MAP. We will test the blood antibody titer against MAP from the patient’s plasma, and we will analyze the patient’s blood by molecular methods for MAP.

In a report, we will report the culture results whether there is a strain of MAP growing in the blood. We will also report whether the blood contains an antibody against MAP with a semi-quantitative titer. We will identify MAP by PCR and sequencing for definitive characterization of the MAP in your blood.
