Anyone have any experience with asbestos test kits? I want to test my attic insulation and am considering this: [ame]http://www.amazon.com/SLGI-Certified-Test-Kits-Asbestos/dp/B008J3ZK8M/[/ame]

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.
