QUESTION: Is it possible to receive an informal sample of LeadCheck kits? 17 Mar 2008 MŁnster, Germany


I'd like too ask you if it is possible to receive a informal sample of your LeadCheck kits?

Please send it to:

GFA Marketing GmbH&Co.KG

Attn. Mr. Fries

Obergraben 23

57072 Siegen


Kind regards


ANSWER: 17 Mar 2008

Dear Christian,

We do not sell LeadCheck kits. They are manufactured and marketed by 3Mô LeadCheckô Swabs in the USA and available online at  or by phone

The LEAD Group is a charity that markets a DIY-sampling kit. The source of all the bits of the kit as well as the set of instructions and the interpretation sheet were all donated to us by one of Australia's leading lead assessors so it would not be in our interest to just send them to you, unless you were going to put the kit to some purpose which might benefit us or some other needy cause. We use the proceeds of the kit sales to cover the running costs of our charity during periods when we might be without government funding. Are you considering similar kits for the German market which might turn a profit for your company?

Our kits are not the type of kit which uses a chemical and changes colour like the LeadCheck kits - they are simply instructions for choosing and collecting samples to send to a lab for lead analysis. Is this the type of kit you are actually interested in?

Please let me know your intentions. I think it would be terrific if you marketed either or both types of kits in Europe. We would certainly include a link to your website on our website if you did market these kits or have any other helpful product for lead source identification.

All the best

Yours Sincerely
Elizabeth O'Brien
