The LEAD Group Shop

Welcome to The LEAD Group Shop

In The LEAD Group Shop, you’ll find a range of Kits and add-ons to meet your various testing needs.

Free LEAD Group Kits for Indigenous Australians

Indigenous Australians typically have higher blood lead levels than non-Indigenous Australians and higher rates of lead-linked impacts such as early death by heart attack or stroke.

The LEAD Group seeks to Close the Gap by offering a free 8-Sample LEAD Group Kit to anyone wishing to collect samples which could lead to the reduction of lead exposure in Indigenous Australians.

Please contact us here if you want to take up our offer.

Take the quiz to figure out what you should test and your next steps.

We recommend the 8-Sample Kit to many of our clients because there’s a lot of flexibility in what can be tested.

The 8-Sample Kit is ideal for people who:

  • Have young children (or are planning a family), indoor pets and are in old home/day care/pre-school/school
  • Have backyard chickens so you can test eggs, chook-run soil, dirt bath soil, commercial chicken feed, any paint and a surface dust wipe of galvanised components the chooks can access
  • Planning on a renovation so you can test ceiling dust, surface dust from multiple areas, paint chips, and water

The 2-Sample Kit is ideal if:

  • You have new taps (or a PVC hose or new water pump, ball valve, etc) or tank water, and only have one tap that you use for water for drinking or cooking (if you have more than one tap for this, then consider the 8-Sample Kit instead)
  • You’re repainting a room and want to test the paint from the walls and architraves
  • You’ve got a vegetable/herb garden and want to test the soil

Did You Know…?

You aren’t locked into 1 type of test when you choose a 2- or 8-Sample Kit.

So, if you decided on a 2-Sample Kit, you might test paint chips and soil.

Or an 8-Sample Kit could see you testing water, surface dust, ceiling dust, soil, paint chip, and more!

You are not limited to testing the same thing for every sample in your Kit.

Options = Add-Ons

Because you can test so many things for lead, we wanted to help make it easier for you to locate exactly what you need and only pay for what you want tested.

It’s for these reasons that there are Add-Ons.

Many of the add-ons incur an extra lab fee as there is special preparation required for the sample to be analysed.

What you’ll need to do is to select your Kit (pop it in the cart), then choose which add-ons you’d like.
