Tick-Borne Disease Diagnostics

The UMass Amherst Laboratory of Medical Zoology (LMZ) tests ticks to determine whether or not they carry the pathogens that cause Lyme Disease and more than twenty other tick-borne pathogens. All species of ticks do not carry all of these pathogens. For information useful in the preliminary idenfication of ticks, you can visit URI Tick Encounter.
