⚠️ Due to a building fire at our office, the ESU Innovation Center, all TickCheck testing orders will be heavily delayed while lab operations are migrated to the ESU Science and Technology Center. Orders have a 7 business day turn around time after check-in. Check-in refers to the point when mail is opened and specimens are identified and set for testing. Orders might not be checked in for up to 1 week after delivery due to a backlog in previously delivered mail. If you'd like to cancel your order you must do so before your tick is checked-in for processing. Call or email to cancel. ⚠️

TickCheck Customer Review from Carleen Menkes

When I found three feeding ticks on my dog I immediately saved and sent them off to Tick Check. Not only did I get immediate identification of the tick type, but I had my results within a day of my order arriving at the lab! And best news, the ticks tested negative for disease, saving my dog from unnecessary antibiotics and giving me an immense sense of relief! The customer service is top notch and based on that and the fast results I would recommend them wholeheartedly. I'll be sending any future ticks to them for testing

Every time we find an attached tick, I send it to TickCheck, they send me a text/email as soon as they receive it, letting me know about the specie of the tick, and one or two days later, they send me the test results. It takes the stress off knowing that I know what to do after I get the results, and in most cases, the ticks were not Lyme carriers, preventing the unnecessary intake of antibiotics. I am so happy I found them, they make our NE springs and summers so much less stressful!

The company was excellent in every respect. Their website is accessible, the service was prompt and highly efficient. Their communication was first-rate. I was also happy that the little bugger who bit me proved to be negative - but I was just happy to have the official word. Couldn't recommend them more highly. Nasty work to do - and they took it on in very positive ways.

Very quick return of test results. And, very understanding when you fail to follow the obvious instructions and wait 2 weeks for a kit to arrive. 😂 Simply pay for the test, put the tick in a bag and mail it to them. Extremely simple. Especially when you read the instructions. Great service.

The turn around was extremely fast, and I feel very relieved with the results. The bite on my arm where the tick had embedded itself healed quickly too. There was some concern at first because my arm swelled up around the bite for a day, but with herbal salves, the swelling went away.
