Date:7/8/2009

''Aimed for the professional market, LeadConfirm Professional is less invasive than blood tests at detecting lead levels in the body.''

Developed by Confirm BioSciences, a San Diego-based biotech company, this test does not require any needle sticks or blood from the body. Just a few simple swabs of the inside cheek is all that is needed to determine how much lead a person has been exposed to.
