  • Product Overview

    The Formaldehyde Test Kit is a helpful do-it-yourself kit that detects the presence and concentration of formaldehyde in your indoor environment. This kit uses a device called a Bio-Badge to retrieve an air sample from an indoor area of up to 2,800 square feet over a 24 to 48 hour testing period. Once the sample is retrieved, you will mail your sample to an accredited laboratory for analysis of its contents. You'll then receive detailed results on the formaldehyde concentration levels found in your sample so you can take action to restore the health of your indoor space.

    Why Test for Formaldehyde?

    Formaldehyde is a toxic colorless gas with a strong odor. Resins containing formaldehyde are commonly used to manufacture building materials and other common household products such as plywood, fabrics, smooth flooring, and carpeting. Health effects due to the exposure to formaldehyde include:

    • Watery eyes
    • Burning of the eyes, nose and throat
    • Wheezing
    • Skin rashes
    • Coughing
    • Aggravated asthma symptoms

    These effects can result from both a high level of formaldehyde in the air or sensitivity to low levels of formaldehyde. Formaldehyde is listed as a probable human carcinogen by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The Formaldehyde Test Kit is an economical way to screen your home or workplace for exposure to this toxic pollutant. This kit is also ideal for evaluating formaldehyde levels in commercial establishments like hospitals, schools, hotels, airports, and more.

    The Testing Procedure

    The Formaldehyde Test Kit includes everything you need to complete the test. The kit uses a patented Bio-Badge sampling device to collect your sample. Step-by-step instructions included in the kit contain a detailed explanation of how to use the badge and retrieve the sample. Once testing begins, the badge should collect sample data for 24 to 48 hours (24 hours is preferable). You may either wear the Bio-Badge to test personal exposure, or you may place the badge in one location to measure room exposure. Lab test results are included in the price of the unit. 

    Once sampling is complete, you'll mail your sample to Environmental Diagnostics Laboratory (EDL). A pre-addressed envelope is included in the kit. Your sample will be tested and a results report detailing the formaldehyde concentration levels found will be sent to you. You can expect to receive your results report within 7 to 10 business days after your sample device is received by EDL.

    NOTE: Once the test kit has been opened and seal has been broken, it cannot be returned.

    Expert Results, Actionable Information

    Your EDL analysis report will identify the concentration level of formaldehyde detected in the testing location. It will also include a summary of recommended actions based on your findings. If you have additional questions about your results, you can contact EDL and discuss your results with an lab professional using the toll-free number provided.

    Additional Features

    • Personal or Room Exposure - Kit can be used to measure personal formaldehyde exposure or room exposure
    • Meets OSHA Standards - Kit meets OSHA accuracy requirements
    • Detects in Parts Per Million - Formaldehyde concentration is detected in parts per million (ppm) and can be detected at levels as low as 0.002 ppm for a 24-hour reading.

      I am so grateful for your formaldehyde test kit. I was having trouble breathing after moving into a mobile home and it was suggested that I find a company who might have a product that could test for formaldehyde. After contacting your company, you sent the test out promptly and without delay. I was able to follow the simple directions in setting the test up. Today I am breathing normally because your test proved that my living condition was not healthy due to a dangerous level of formaldehyde. I feel safe and secure knowing that your company offers products that, if need be, my loved ones can call upon to ensure them of a healthy existence. Thank you Sylvane.

      The instructions say that results after 7-10 days after receiving it at ed lab. Now over a month after sending to ed lab, with several phone calls, to voice mail, phone contact with a rep, and email,
      no results. I was also told that I would get email and a phone call over a week ago, but no results. I have all the symptoms of formaldehyde allergy, which have increased the past three years here. I want to know if I live in a toxic home!

        Bought this to test air after finding out laminate flooring may be an issue. I sent it in as directions said and never heard back from company. I called and the lady said all the technicians were busy and took down all my info and said someone would call or email back and nothing. Definitely not the route you want to go if you want results.

            thankfully I passed with a very low score .. so that made me happy .. was very easy to set up and send back for testing etc ..

            only negative was that there were 2 sets of instructions .. 1 very easy and the other seemed very randomly complex

            overall very good and easy product .. thanks !!
