TickCheck™ Tick Testing - Order Form

We know it can be stressful to discover a tick on yourself, a loved one, or a pet. Tick-borne pathogens, including Borrelia burgdorferi—the causative agent of Lyme disease, are carried by over 45% of ticks in the wild. Having your tick tested for tick-borne pathogens is one of the best ways to determine your risk of infection.

TickCheck can determine whether the tick that bit you carries the bacteria that cause Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses. Just order a tick test with the form below, mail the tick to our laboratory, and you will get your test results within 48 hours* or less after we receive it.

*Excluding weekends. In the case we receive your tick on Friday, we will resume processing it on Monday, as our lab technicians are unavailable on weekends.

tick(s)
At no extra charge, you can send us up to 5 ticks of the same species, taken off of the same person or pet. We will run the exact same tests you ordered on all of these specimens, at the same time. Your test results will reflect whether any tick in the group of ticks you sent us is a carrier of each specific pathogen we test for. Because we will test all of the ticks simultaneously as combined sample, it is not possible to tell which ticks are carriers of which pathogens. If you have multiple ticks from different people or pets, or want results for each tick, please place separate orders.

Additional Options

Applicable to deer ticks and western blacklegged ticks only. Note that the incubation process for the Powassan virus (POWV) is separate from other pathogenic tests. Therefore, we cannot perform the POWV test after the main testing process has already begun. For this reason, we recommend the comprehensive panel, which includes the POWV test. You may also order it here as an additional option from the start.

Inconclusive results will not be refunded. This test is only possible before the DNA testing process begins.
