Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TJ Great Product & Service for DO IT YOURSELF Test
Asbestos test kit was excellent for the money. Kit includes bag and gloves for sample collection. Plus postage pre-paid return envelop. I registered my kit online with no issues. Collected the sample per instructions and send it off. You do need to send $40 for the analysis to be performed. This is a very reasonable charge. I received my test results in about five working days after they received the sample.
The only bad thing about the whole process was that my Home Depot did not stock the test kit and I had to order online and go back to the store to pick it up
I would highly recommend Pro-Lab for asbestos analysis.

Mistakenly thought that the cost of the test included the test itself as was the case with the radon test that I purchase. Consequently I found a local test company that was much cheaper than the one that I purchase. If I lived away from a city with testing abilities I would definitely recommend this kit as it is easy and not that expensive to get the results and know for sure what you are dealing with.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by me way below expectation
Mortified that this product didn't come with a respirator. Be sure to buy one as this is more important than anything else when doing this test or handling asbestos. I tried to register my kit online, but there is no where to do this. When I called Prolab about the registration I was told that the "website must be down." The website was working fine, but there is no where to register the product. As per other reviews, I guess Home Depot is still selling an outdated kit, because I couldn't register it online and it still says results in five days on the packaging. I'm a little skeptical of how the rest of my experience will go.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by larry Inexpensive and easy to use
The instructions could have been a bit easier to understand. But after reading twice to be sure, it all was pretty user-friendly. One thing though....the product that I received was an older version of this test which indicated that results would be returned within 5 days after received by the testing lab. When I called the lab to ask why I had not received my results, they informed me that they updated their turn-around time (now within 7 days after receipt) and they told me I had an old/outdated test kit (from their previous 5 day turnaround time). Otherwise, everything went according to plan. Thanks.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by AlBestos1 Waste of time
The results took more than 2 weeks after the lab received it, not 3-5 business days. The results are vaguely presented and there is no explanation to the layman. Unless you can interpret the information yourself this product is a waste of time.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Shasta misleading
This is an asbestos testing kit that you pay almost $7 for and all it comes with is an envelope to mail off your sample. Very misleading. I returned this product and had my sample tested locally for $14 and had my results in 24hrs

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jewlz Great option to hiring local removal company to test
Great value, easy instructions and to use. I received my results within the 2 week time frame stated via email. Results were thorough. I contacted a couple popcorn ceiling removal companies to just get an estimate on asbestos testing and it was going to run around $250-$300. To get a kit and for testing to be sent to the state center would run a little over $100. This kit and the testing totaled $50 and no headaches. Granted, you can only test one area per kit, but worth it if you are sure the ceiling was all done at the same time. Now, I can utilize the money I saved toward tools for my popcorn removal project in the spring.

This is worth the $47 in total to check if you have asbestos before you spend over $300 having a company come out, just to find out you don't have it. However, the paper says you get results within 3-5 days after they receive your sample. I got an email saying they received it and that I wouldn't get my results for over 2 weeks. This was very misleading on the part of their advertisement but all in all I would recommend it.
