BE WARNED! AMAZON is advertising the 3M product, but sending the Hybrivet Systems, Inc. product out! 3M took over the LeadCheck product at some point. I called 3M to make sure the product without the 3M logo was safe. 3M informed me that the LeadCheck in that kit is TOO OLD to be reliable at this point! The copyright date on the package I got is 2010.

My doctor tested me for lead and found that I have high levels in my blood. She suggested that I buy a lead kit to test my dishes and glassware. I bought these 3M lead tests on Amazon and got to work. At first I thought they must not work because nothing tested positive, not even my lead crystal bowl and vase. At the last minute, as I was replacing the crystal dishes back on the display shelf I spotted on old beer stein that my Dad got in Germany about 60 years ago. It has a pewter lid so I tested that. Bingo! The swab turned bright red.

After using a swab and getting a negative result, you can continue to re-use the same swab on several more items. Once the swab turns red it is useless for any other tests.

I was feeling great after the first two swabs came back negative. To make sure they were working correctly, I swabbed an exterior door that I KNOW has a high degree of lead paint (it had been tested professionally). This swab also came back negative. So, now I have no confidence in these.

The instructions state to crush the swab in two places and then squeeze until a small amount of fluid shows at the end of the swab - then you have two minutes to rub the swab on the surface you are testing. If it turns red or pink or purple, lead is present. The test will not work if you swish the paint chips around in the solution. The swab must be rubbed on each surface you are testing. Consumer reports gives this product a high rating for detecting surface lead.

I purchased this kit to test my dinnerware for lead when I noticed that the glaze and design were wearing thin. It tested positive for lead, so I now have a new set of dinnerware that doesn't have any lead in it. This kit was so easy to use, and has helped me to have peace of mind that I am not feeding dangerous chemicals to my family. Just break the swab as directed, rub the tip on the item you want to test, and check for red color changes. If no color change is seen, place a drop on the enclosed card to make sure the test swab is working correctly, and you're done. Can't be any easier.

Hard to say if it works, as it detected no lead in my house, to my relief. But it does come with handy test strips containing real lead, so you can see if the test itself was defective, or whether it was in fact detecting no lead. In all cases, the swabs did turn the test strips red, but detected no lead in my house. Yay.

Item was listed as 3M Lead Check Swabs and showed 3M logo on the packaging. What I got was was LeadCheck by Hybrivet Systems, Inc. On further research, I find that 3M purchased Hybrivet last year. The reason this is important to me, is that I am a certified by the State of Wisconsin as a Lead-Safe Renovator. Until this spring, no lead test products met the state requirements. In about June, Wisconsin recognized the 3M product as acceptable. No other test kit was included. When I asked 3M to certify that the product I received from Amazon was in fact included in those recognized by Wisconsin, the only thing I got from them was that they purchased Hybrivet. In my mind that is not a clear enough answer. I would have been comfortable if the packaging I received had the 3M logo on it.

DO NOT USE THIS TEST KIT!!!

because this kit does not detect lead. I tested this on pure lead tape that is used to block radiation and also tried it on leaded solder. The test kit result was negative on pure lead! I then tried the control sample of lead that come with the kit to make sure the kit is working. The control sample that came with the kit also gave a negative result! This kit provides false negatives and should not be sold. This kit is useless because if you do not detect lead on a sample it still has just as much chance of having lead than if you had never run the test. My kit was well inside the expiration date.

This kit either needs to be fixed or taken off the market. This is down right dangerous to read negative when pure lead is tested.
