Then test for the presence of all the most common tickborne pathogens in addition to Lyme Disease including:

Babesia Microti (Babesiosis), Borrelia Miyamotoi (Tick-Borne Relapsing Fever), Anaplasma Phagocytophilum (Anaplasmosis) , Rickettsia Rickettsii (Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever), Francisella Tularensis (Tularemia) , Ehrlichia spp. (Ehrlichiosis).

We accept all major credit cards. We also accept checks. Please make the check out to “New Jersey Laboratories”.

If you choose to drop the tick off in-person at our lab, you can leave the sample to be tested, Monday thru Friday from 8AM to 4PM. No testing will be performed unless full payment is made.

Multiple ticks on the same person can be composited and tested in a single test but ticks found on different individuals must be tested individually.

DO NOT use tape, alcohol, Vaseline or antibiotic ointment to remove the tick. Tweezers work best. Also do not freeze or try to flatten/squeeze the tick.

Pack each tick in a small zip-lock bag packed with a water moistened cotton ball. Then send to the address below:

IMPORTANT! Please put your name and email address (an address label works best) on the outside of a zip-locked bag containing your tick sample.

Test results will be emailed or sent approximately 5-7 days after receipt. We cannot provide verbal results over the phone.
