  • 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.

    Once sampling is complete, you'll mail your sample to Environmental Diagnostics Laboratory (EDL). A pre-addressed envelope is included in the kit. EDL scientists will then analyze your sample and compile a results report detailing the formaldehyde concentration levels found. 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, kit 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.

    I cannot comment as since I never received any results from the test I don't know if the product is any good or not. All I can say is it is easy to use.

        We are full-time RVers and live in a 5th wheel. We had a concern about formaldehyde emissions and my wife's health. We had heard that formaldehyde could be the source of unexplained breathing and muscular illnesses. This test gave us the information we needed in a timely manner. The positive results put us at ease concerning formaldehyde as a source of contamination. We recommend the test for anyone living in a confined space. This will provide the answer they may need.

        Comments about Allergen Test Kits Formaldehyde Test Kit:

        Learned interesting information about the dangers of levels of formaldehyde and that resources are available to test levels in our environment. The product was easy to use and was sure of its accuracy.
        It was important for me to know for sure that a rental unit of mine was safe from a toxic level of formaldehyde.

        Comments about Allergen Test Kits Formaldehyde Test Kit:

        The shipping of the test kit was excellent. The kit was easy to use. I just wish the lab confirms when it receives the kit. It took a little longer than expected because I mailed it before a major holiday, so I was unsure when I could expect the test results. They were emailed within the business day range after it was received, I believe.
