Lyme disease, the most common tickborne disease in the United States, can cause fever, headache, fatigue, and a characteristic skin rash called erythema migrans. If left untreated, infection can spread to joints, the heart, and the nervous system.
TickCheck™ can determine with 99.99% accuracy if the tick that bit you carries Lyme or 10 additional tick-borne diseases. Here's how it works:
Symptoms of Lyme appear days or weeks after the initial bite. Only tick testing enables you to determine if you were exposed to a tick-borne disease before symptoms ever appear, allowing you to discuss proactive treatment options with your doctor. Get your tick tested now!
Lyme disease is the most common disease transmitted by tick bites, and Connecticut is a high-risk region. Symptoms commonly mimic influenza and arthritis, and may develop into serious neurological or cardiac conditions.

They were extremely accommodating and tested my tick within a little more than 24 hours! They were available to ask questions by phone, which I appreciated. Also, they retain the specimen for two years in case you have other questions about it. I love the fact that the comprehensive panel test for every test that a particular tick could have for a reasonable price. Highly recommended!
Excellent service. They updated me via both text and email when they received my tick, upon species identification, and finally when they processed the lab results. I also like that they gave me a choice to upgrade my analysis later on. Great customer service. Highly recommend!!
Fast and reliable! They let you know when the tick arrives, they identify the type of tick that it is and when you can expect the results. And they delivered the results by text and email as promised. I was pretty concerned when they identified the tick as a nymph deer tick but today I received great news, it tested negative for the diseases that they tested it for. I will sleep well tonight. Great service! Linda Hays
Website was easy to navigate and efficient, instructions for sending the actual tick off were quite clear. After paying on the web, I easily printed out the requisition that I was instructed to send along with the tick. They texted and emailed me as soon as they received the tick, and then texted and emailed me the results the very next day. Excellent service. Thank you.
Easy to use service. Flexible options for level of services. Excellent response from time of receipt to initial diagnoses to final test results.
