Due to COVID-19 viral testing and limited reagent stocks, we are prioritizing Powassan virus testing to ticks removed from humans only. Ticks from animals will receive the basic tick panel only. Sorry for the inconvenience at this time and as soon as we receive the proper stock for testing we will remove this limit.
If you can upload one or more high-quality, detailed photographs of a tick to us, we can identify the tick's species for you free of charge. Please ensure at least one photograph depicts a clear and focused view of the tick's dorsal side (back). Another may show the tick's underbelly and mandible.
