I was first introduced to these LeadCheck swabs at my Iowa Lead-Safe Renovator class. They provide a reliable test in a simple, easy-to-use format that works well for small contractors like me.
It's nice to be able to show a customer on-site what the results of the test are, without waiting for a lengthy and expensive lab test to come back.
One small problem I did find was that after I "crush" the contents and shake it, I sometimes have to squeeze the tube a bit to get the mixture to flow out. The little plastic pieces from the vials seem to plug the hole a little.
Other than that, they work very nicely and are easy to just toss in the toolbox and go.

This kit is really easy to use. I own an older home, and when paint peeled in a closet, I was really concerned about lead paint. Each cartridge takes seconds to use. I especially like the confirmation cards. When your check comes up negative, you use it on one of the cards, each of which has a small amount of lead, so you get a confirmation that the cartridge is still working.

Its currently the only EPA certified test kit out there on the market. It works great just follow the instructions. Most local places do not have them in stock. Home Depot gets it to you in a few days.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chuck Since LeadCheck was bought by 3M the kits have improved dramatically. Excellant Product.
Kits are used in our EPA Certified Renovator classes to demonstrate the proper use of EPA recognized test kits. Excellant product used to determine presence or not of lead-based paint.

Easy to use. Negative results can be validated with test strip, so you know the tester works.
