This kit is right for you if you’re interested in knowing the types of plastics in your drinking water and their concentration. Utilizing cutting-edge optical and polarized light microscopy alongside Raman spectroscopy for unparalleled accuracy, your laboratory results will include detection of microplastic concentrations down to 1 micron as well as polymer identification.

  • Certified lab testing
  • Fast turnaround at lab (12 days)
  • Free shipping, both ways
  • Expert support

Note: Methods for microplastics analysis are still developing and currently have many limitations. This test combines optical microscopy with polarized light microscopy to get a higher accuracy count of microplastics at small particle sizes (1-10μm), as well as Raman spectroscopy which is accurate at identifying polymer types down to 10μm.

What’s inside your testing kit?

Sampling Instructions

Every test comes with step by step instructions on how to prepare your water source, collect your water sample, and prepare your sample for return shipment to our labs.

Collection Bottles

Your kit includes all the bottles, tubes or vials necessary to collect your water sample. For most kits, however, there is only one collection bottle needed.

Sample Information Card

Your kit includes a postcard that asks for a few details about how and where you collected your sample (i.e. kitchen faucet). Just fill it out, drop it in the return box, and we'll do the rest.

Prepaid Shipping Label

Shipping is always on us. This package includes a prepaid priority shipping label to the lab. Just stick the provided label on the outside of the box and drop it in the mail.

Return Container (If Applicable)

Some of our tests require your water sample to be cold when it reaches our labs. If this applies to your test, the proper refrigeration items will be included.
