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
  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!

Very pleased with the service provided. I was particularly impressed that they called to tell me the species of the tick and recommend a different test than I had ordered. It was not a more expensive test it was a more appropriate test for that species.

They were easy to use, promoted with updated I would use them again in a second. Good company.

We’ve had a history of Lyme as a family & have had ticks tested at other labs before, but this is WAY faster & more clear. Unfortunately, BIG FANS.
