Tick Testing:

Ticks can be tested at the UMass Laboratory of Medical Zoology (LMZ)? The standard and most common test of deer ticks is $50. For this, LMZ identifies the tick, photographs it (dorsal and ventral), assesses its feeding condition, and provides test results for presence of Lyme disease, Anaplasmosis, and Babesiosis. The results are provided to you to share with your medical provider, if you choose.

If you should find a tick biting you, carefully remove it using tweezers and place it in a sealable plastic bag. The lab can analyze a tick submitted in almost any condition. Go to, complete an online testing submittal form, write the order number provided on the bag, and send it in an envelope with the tick to the address indicated on the website.
