Research testing (the slower, but less expensive, option)
Submitted ticks are tested for the presence of Borrelia burgdorferi, the most common of the Lyme disease bacteria, and other species of Borrelia.
*This testing is not recommended for ticks from humans because it is slower. Humans get ill from infected ticks more quickly than dogs or cats.
The tick donor must pay postage.
