This report provides results for the verification testing of LeadAVERT Test Kit for lead-based paint by Silver Lake Research. The following is a description of the LeadAVERT Test Kit, based on information provided by the vendor. The information provided below was not verified in this test. The LeadAVERT Test Kit is an antibody-based test for the detection of lead in paint samples. The test uses specific monoclonal antibodies that recognize and bind to lead atoms extracted from paint with a weakly acidic, low-toxicity extraction solution. The antibodies are incorporated in a competitive immunoassay in a lateral-flow test strip format, so that the entire immunoassay is contained in a small test strip activated by the flow of sample. Results are read visually as blue lines appearing in the result window of the test strip. The LeadAVERT Test Kit is calibrated to give a positive or negative, relative to the 1 milligrams per centimeter squared (mg/cm2) standard for lead based paint.
