Indemnification of Responsibility
While we make every effort to maintain true and up-to-date information on the website, we cannot be held responsible for incorrect information or the results of using any information on the website.
Geneticks Canada offers laboratory tick testing services. While our test results can be useful in determining your risk of exposure to tick-borne diseases, you understand that our testing services are intended for informational purposes only and are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. Your receipt of a negative tick test from Geneticks Canada cannot guarantee that you will not contract the disease tested for, nor does a positive tick test from Geneticks Canada imply that you will necessarily contract the disease identified by the test. Additionally, while PCR-based testing is extremely accurate, there is always the small possibility of a false positive or negative.
