WESTON, Fla., July 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The world's leading supplier of home safety testing kits, PRO-LAB® (www.prolabinc.com ) is expanding their line of Do-It-Yourself tests to include their new Allergen Test Kit. "Home should be a haven, not a source of irritation. Unfortunately allergies are becoming more prevalent with millions of Americans suffering year-round because of allergens trapped within their homes. We created the Allergen Test Kit to give Americans the resource they need to identify the source of their ailments," said Jamie McDonnell, CEO of PRO-LAB.

According to the American College of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology the most common indoor allergens include dust mites, mold spores, and pet dander.[1] The enclosed nature of indoor environments exacerbates the danger of allergens, causing a real threat to respiratory health. The PRO-LAB Allergen Test Kit offers a simple, affordable way to detect these allergen particles. The test is easy to usesecure the included attachment to a vacuum nozzle and run in suspect locations. Once the sample cassette is filled, simply place in the pre-addressed mailer to be sent and analyzed.

The PRO-LAB Allergen Test Kit employs the same testing methods used by doctors and professional home inspectors. Using powerful analytical technology called Enzyme-Linked Immuno-Sorbent Analysis consumers get the most accurate results available. "The results empower families with the knowledge needed to protect themselves. Pinpointing the location of allergens allows them to be eradicated instead of continuing with endless symptom treatment," said McDonnell.

Kits will be available on August 1st. PRO-LAB products are sold at over 40,000 leading home centers, hardware stores and pharmacy chains including The Home Depot, Lowe's, Walmart, Menards, Ace, True Value and Amazon.com.

Allergen Test Kits SRP is $9.95.
