{*filter*}fluid Lyme testing in the home>?!!!!!!!!
Sounds like a joke to me...

Avitar has identified several growth opportunities in the in-vitro diagnostics
market that fit well with {*filter*}fluid POC tests. These applications include
glucose monitoring, Lyme disease, influenza, and pregnancy testing. Each of
these diagnostic segments was selected for their unique needs and the benefits
which {*filter*}fluid technology can provide; non-invasive collection, quick,
accurate and inexpensive.

Lyme Disease
Currently over 60% of the United States population is exposed to the dangers of
Lyme disease, a condition that induces arthritis-like symptoms in its victim.
Lyme disease is contracted most often via the bite of a deer tick, which is
prevalent in wooded areas in California and the Northeastern United States.
Recently, a vaccine for Lyme disease has been developed. However, often the
patient is unaware of the exposure risks to the disease until after they have
contracted it. Usually, results of the tests administered in the Physician's
office can take several days to be completed.

{*filter*}fluid testing in the home provides a unique opportunity for the rapid
diagnosis of Lyme disease and therefore faster treatment. Avitar recognizes the
advantages of {*filter*}fluid tests for the diagnostic market.
