Send Us Your Tick
If the tick is alive, put a moist cotton ball in the zip-lock bag with the tick.
Drop off the intact tick in a zip-lock bag. If mailing, put the zip-lock bag in a padded envelope. Place your name and address (an address label works as well) on the outside of the zip-locked bag.
Although DNA testing is a highly sensitive technique, the accuracy of the testing may depend on the condition of the tick. For most accurate results, do not break or crush the tick, or allow the tick to dehydrate.
Multiple ticks on the same person can be composited and tested in a single test. Ticks found on different individuals must be tested individually.
Please pay by credit card on this page, or send a check with the tick sample. Fill out all fields on the payment form, and under “Note to Seller,” please specify which test you prefer from the options listed on the Testing Panel.
Testing Fee is $55 for Lyme disease; $105 for Relevant Testing (includes Lyme).
