Health care professionals, consumers and others can send IdentifyUS samples to confirm the identity of suspected lice and eggs. Patients are encouraged to first approach their doctor or nurse for assistance and to discuss treatment. Submitted samples are considered for entomological identification, and are not considered as clinical laboratory specimens. A Specimen Evaluation Form is available for submitting samples for evaluation and review. Digital images can be submitted online for a quick, confidential response. Physical samples can be sent via courier to our lab facilities in Newton, MA.
