About us

Our Story

We offer quality analytical services.

In 1987, Schneider Laboratories Global, Inc. (SLGI) was launched in Richmond, Virginia with limited resources, and a mission to contribute to a safer and cleaner world. We became the first laboratory in the United States to receive accreditation for the analysis of lead based paint chips, soil and dust wipes. We were also the first laboratory in the state of Virginia to be licensed for bulk asbestos analysis.

Since then, we have expanded our analytical expertise by continuously improving our capabilities in accordance with industry standards, and have grown into a full-service environmental and industrial hygiene testing laboratory. We can test any air, water and solid material for a myriad of tests, such as lead, mercury, hexavalent chromium, asbestos, mold, bacteria, PCBs, DRO, GRO and many more.

We are a small business committed to providing reproducible and defensible analytical data, flexible turnaround times, and superior customer service.

Our Kits​

We know the importance of a healthy home.

Our services were primarily used by industry professionals, so we created our SLGI Home Test Kits to provide home or business owners with the ability to test their surroundings for health hazards in a simplified manner. Our kits come with tools and instructions needed to collect samples. They also contain a return shipping label to our laboratory where the samples are analyzed at no extra cost. Kit customers can register their information on our website, and can view their results once available.
