    Easy to use and works well but caution is needed preparing samples where multiple layers of paint are involved. I tested the garage door on my 1959 house expecting to find lead paint and I did. I then wondered whether the door frame also had lead paint. I first tried scraping the surface with a knife and the test proved negative. Not quite believing it I managed to pull off some large chips of flaking paint and broke them into smaller and smaller pieces thus exposing the edges of multiple paint layers. That time the test showed positive for lead. While not mentioned in the instructions it's necessary to cut the cotton swabs provided in half to do the test. The swab is to be inserted into the test solution and then into a small plastic test tube. The test tube is too small for a full length swab. Cutting them in half also gives you double the number of test swabs. But you'll use up all the swabs before the test solution is gone. Just buy more cotton swabs. The type supplied have a plastic stick, not paper or wood.

    There are two ways to test for lead with this kit--quantitatively (yes or no) and qualitatively (how much). I did the quick qualitative test and noticed that the applicator tip turned all dingy, which could mean the presence of lead or it could mean that the dish I was testing wasn't 100% clean, and it's the type of dish that's really hard to get all the food particles off of. So, I thought there must have been lead, but then I did the qualitative test, which you have to wait hours to get the results for, and that test was negative. Overall, it was a good purchase, I just wish they could make the test swab change more obvious colors to indicate the presence of lead (e.g. red, green) instead of something that could just be a slightly dirty dish (like gray, black, and brown).

    I tested some old pottery for cooking and found one had lead and the other didn't. This test worked pretty well. I would buy it again if I ever need to.

    Also, is there enough to test several places, say 10 applications, if the container is tightly sealed between applications. Is it EPA certified?

    • A. There are only 4 applicator tips which just look like q-tips and only enough test liquid for about that many. You may be able to do one or two more tests beyond the 4 but I wouldn't count on it.

    • A. I've done 7 tests using one vial. There is enough solution in the vial to do 2 or 3 more but you will have to purchase more cotton swabs. Each test kit contains only 2 swabs which are cut in half for use thus giving you 4 tests. Note that the cotton swabs supplied have a plastic stick. That may be important since the instructions note that wood fibers in the test will cause a false positive. I suspect paper sticks might also do that. I have no idea about EPA certification. I doubt it but you can get the usage instruction sheet on First Alerts's web site

    • A. The product says it is only four tests, but the four tests are two Q-tips cut in half. There is plenty more of the activation fluid after four tests if you have more Q-tips available. So, yes, you can probably get roughly 10 applications.
