Asbestos Test Kits?


That isn't really a test kit, it is simply a bag to put a sample in and send it to the lab for polarized light microscopy (PLM). At $35 a sample, that is pretty low cost, no idea if you get correct results. For my money, I would take a sample to a local approved lab for testing.
