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 Virginia is a high-risk region. Symptoms commonly mimic influenza and arthritis, and may develop into serious neurological or cardiac conditions.

I am so thankful for this company! I got my first tick bite this past summer and was really concerned and uncertain about what I should do. I didn’t want to take antibiotics if it wasn’t necessary, but I also didn’t want to not take action if the tick actually happened to have Lyme’s or some other disease. So I started searching online, and thankfully I found TickCheck! This was the first tick testing company that I could actually call and speak to a representative over the phone! All the other ones were online only. I personally feel so much more comfortable speaking to an actual person, since I would be able to ask questions and make sure it was a legit company. When I called, I spoke to a lady named Nij. She was extremely knowledgeable and very patient. I had many questions and concerns, and she answered all of them! After speaking to her, I felt at ease, so I went ahead and put in an order to have the tick tested. The results came back way before the estimated time, so I was extremely grateful and relieved! This company went above and beyond from start to finish, and I would DEFINITELY recommend them! As a matter of fact, if I or anyone else I know gets bitten by a tick in the future, I know exactly who to call—TickCheck!😊
I never write reviews, but feel I need to on this one. This service was worth every penny for me. Nijmih on staff at TickCheck was very knowledgable and timely in her replies to my every question and concern. They quickly tested the tick I sent and got me the piece of mind I needed. Highly recommend.
TickCheck was great. I sent in the tick and had a confirmation of receipt the following day. I had results in less than 72 hours. They were also extremely responsive to my questions.
Quick turn around on my tick.Tick was tested positive for Babesia. Do you have any data on the rate that people contract the virus if the tick is positive for the disease ? Thank you great service from TickCheck.
This service was so valuable to me! The staff was extremely helpful, sympathetic and educational, I got the results in 24 hours.Their website is very educational, so much helpful information. Being able to have the tick tested was such a relief, my fear & anxiety about contracting a tick born disease was great. I was lucky the tick that bit me was bacteria free. What a relief! I highly recommend Tickcheck lab.
