Bitten by a tick? Find out if it carries Lyme disease!

About Lyme Disease: Lyme disease is the most common disease transmitted by tick bites, and Virginia is one of the highest-risk states. Symptoms commonly mimic influenza and arthritis, and may develop into serious neurological or cardiac conditions.

Who are we? TickCheck.com is a collaboration with East Stroudsburg University's Northeast Wildlife DNA Laboratory in Pennsylvania.

We're a full-service University DNA laboratory, and have been testing ticks since 2006. And since 2014, we've tested 351 ticks from Virginia, and much more nationwide. Have questions? Give us a call at 1-866-713-TICK!

Over 55% of ticks carry Lyme or another tick-borne disease. [1]

If you or a loved one were bitten by a tick, you may have been exposed to a tick-borne infection. Lyme disease, the most prevalent tick-borne infection in Virginia, is a potentially-chronic illness that can spread to joints, the heart, and the nervous system. [2]

TickCheck™ can determine with 99.99% accuracy if the tick that bit you carries Lyme or 9 additional tick-borne diseases. Here's how it works:

  1. Order a tick test on TickCheck.com
  2. Send your tick directly to our lab - no waiting for a kit!
  3. Get your tick test results within 24-48 hours of lab receipt.

Test your tick now to determine your risk of contracting Lyme.

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!

TickCheck Customer Review from alison pluim

So thankful for TickCheck and their advocacy against Lyme by way of this helpful service. As a resident from an area of Canada that does not yet offer in-province tick testing, I am particularly grateful. The process for having a tick tested was easy from start to finish. And from the moment the lab received the specimen there was regular communication re: testing process. I would highly recommend this service to anyone looking for reassurance/ peace of mind.

Fast, efficient, professional. User friendly website to place the order. The lab updated me with each step of the process from receipt of the specimen, confirming what was being tested, to final lab results. I highly recommend their service.

They had the test result in less than 24 hours. We were lucky that the tick had no pathogens. It was great to find out instead of waiting to see if anyone got sick.

They tested the tick I sent in and provide the results within 24 hours. The website is very user friendly. I will use them again if necessary.

Didn’t have to wait to mail the sample in a special container, they let me know when the sample had been received, and sent me the test results in a short amount of time. Great service!
