About TickCheck Tick Testing

Did you just find a tick on yourself or a loved one? TickCheck can test your tick and determine whether it carries the bacteria that transmit Lyme disease and other tick-borne infections.

TickCheck is the nation's top tick testing service. We work with an university-affiliated lab based in East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania to provide fast, highly rated, laboratory-quality tick testing to people in high-risk areas for Lyme and other tick-borne diseases nationwide.

We offer PCR-based tick testing that is 99.99% accurate and can detect the presence of 30 pathogens that cause diseases such as Lyme disease, anaplasmosis, babesia, bartonella, ehrlichiosis, tularemia, B. miyamotoi, mycoplasmosis, southern tick-associated rash illness, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and the deer tick virus.

Unlike traditional laboratories' complicated test requisition forms, TickCheck.com has a simple, easy to use interface for ordering tick tests. Just order your tests, mail your tick to our East Stroudsburg laboratory, and your results will be ready within 24-48 hours of lab receipt, excluding weekends. Got a tick? Get started now!
