Lead Testing for Schools & Day Care Centers

Children are most susceptible to the effects of lead, because their bodies are still undergoing development. Suburban Laboratories is the lead testing experts. We offer cost effective pricing, easy to follow sampling instructions, forms, labels and containers, fast turnaround time and a professional certificate of analysis.

Home and Residential Drinking Water Testing

The importance of safe drinking water in your home is essential so we created a website dedicated to providing families with information about water quality.  At you learn more about your water quality and quickly and easily order test kits.  Each test kit includes a pre-cleaned sample bottle, easy to follow collection instructions and a professional report of the results.

Unlike other organizations that offer free or low cost testing, we use EPA approved methods and we will never try to sell you other products or services. As an independent lab, your information will remain confidential and when it comes to safety of you and your family, we are on your side.

The following is some common tests/packages for home water.  For a complete list of tests visit

Municipal and Community Drinking Water Testing

Suburban Laboratories has been testing public community drinking water for over 40 years. Our drinking water project managers have more than 100 combined years of experience and we have tested more than 1 million compliance samples. We believe our most important goal is to assist those in charge of public and community water supplies meet all federal, state and local drinking water regulations to ensure water is safe. Our internal systems are designed to ensure compliance and by forming a partnership between the water operator, regulatory agency and the laboratory, we will ensure your water supply is compliant.
