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.

A very thorough company -- tested the tick and the results included that the tick did, indeed, test positive for Lyme, but that due to it's size and amount of blood, was only attached for 7 hours or less. That knowledge caused me to not have to go on a preventative 3 week dose of antibiotics! (It usually takes about 24 hours of attachment to transmit Lyme.) Love this company!
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.
Excellent customer service. Very quick turn-around time with concise report. The cost was very reasonable. This is the place to use if you ever get bit by a tick!
I used TickCheck to analyze a tick I pulled off of me. I wanted to know if it carried any diseases. It was very easy to fill out the form and the directions were clear on how to send the tick in. I got the results very quick. I will definitely use them again if I get bit again. Thanks.
This offered me such peace-of-mind and the service was SO easy to use. The results came so fast, were easy to read, and really affordable. I will definitely use this service again if we need to in the future. Thank you SO much!
