Disposable Funnels Help With Research Into Lead Paint Testing Methods


(Elk Grove Village, IL, June 12, 2009) – Researchers with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and RTI International investigating new methods for paint collection and lead testing are using Fast Funnel® disposable funnels to assist in safely and easily collecting samples (Journal of Environmental Monitoring, Rapid new methods for paint collection and lead extraction, 2009, 11, 1, DOI: 10.1039/b807679k). Made from heavy-stock paper and designed for one-time use to eliminate the impurities and cross contamination found on reusable funnels, Fast Funnel insures that test samples aren’t contaminated from other sources and allows for safe disposal should lead be found. Additionally, flexible sidewalls and a unique, square profile allow these funnels to closely contour test surfaces thereby improving sample collection under the team’s procedures. Researchers hope their work ultimately leads to the development of a lead paint test kit that meets EPA specifications. As Fast Funnel comes folded flat, they keep out dirt and store easily but open up into full size funnels making them well suited for this application. Made from SFI and FSC certified renewable materials and biodegradable, they’re also an environmentally friendly product.
