To provide a professional tick testing service to public individuals and agencies seeking more information about the risk of dangerous tick-borne pathogens.
We've developed a battery of tests through years of research on disease-causing microbes in ticks. Since 2006, we've offered this expertise as a service to the general public and health agency partners.
Since that time, we've endeavored to keep costs of this testing to a minimum to allow us to serve the greatest number of subscribers. As the popularity of the service grew, the amount of data collected also grew, and we now share that data as part of a Tick-Borne Disease Network passive surveillance program that we hope will continue to grow and provide unprecedented insights to who is being bitten by ticks, when they get bitten, and what pathogens those ticks are carrying.
