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 42% 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 2-3 business days after we receive it.

*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 Information

Help us track the spread of ticks. If you found your tick(s) in an area other than your address entered above, add the city & state or ZIP here.

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.
