If you're looking for a laboratory that offers to test ticks - here we are! GenEra Laboratory offers to test removed ticks for pathogenic microorganisms.
We offer a highly sensitive molecular-biological test that in a single tick can detect up to four pathogens simultaneously. We test ticks for a single pathogen, or two to four pathogens at the same time in a single test:
The testing of ticks against Lyme disease, anaplasmosis, and ehrlichiosis is particularly relevant, as there is no vaccination against these diseases.
* When testing a tick for Lyme disease or borreliosis, we simultaneously test for three of the most common pathogens.
To deliver a tick for testing, it must be removed as soon as possible and as intact as possible, then brought to our laboratory:
1. The tick should be placed on a damp cloth or cotton ball in a small, clean container with a stopper or screw cap (a zip-lock bag can also be used).
2. As soon as possible bring the tick to SIA GenEra Laboratory along with the testing application form that can be downloadedhere.
3. After successful payment, we will begin the testing, which takes on average up to 3 working days.

Proper removal of the tick is very important.
Attention! Important to know!
Please be aware that several tick-borne diseases, such as Lyme disease and anaplasmosis, can affect not only humans but also animals: our pets!
So for testing we also accept ticks taken from animals!
If the test is positive, please contact your veterinarian for further information.
SIA GenEra does not offer a tick removal service!
