I am so disappointed that you don't test for glyphosate. It's the number one selling herbicide on the planet for goodness sake. You were quick to tell me that you don't advertise that you test for glyphosate, that it's not listed anywhere on your website... so I'm guessing you've heard this complaint before.

If you aren't going to test for the most widely used poison affecting our water supply today, you should state THAT on your website.

A very disappointed customer who now has to spend another $150 to test her well water for glyphosate.

Response from karlabs.com:

An illegitimate complaint. The customer purchased something that she admittedly knew in-advance that she wasn't going to get, then complained about not getting it. Our lab used to maintain USEPA certification for glyphosate but so few customers requested it that we abandoned certification for it. Adding a single glyphosate test to our kit line would increase the cost of our 4 kits by 300%, 150%, 100%, and 60% and they would be unaffordable to most homeowners. We would have to stop offering the kits.

Because glyphosate binds strongly to soil, it's not likely to leach into groundwater and simply isn't a significant drinking water health threat. It's an inefficient use of your water testing money in most cases. The safety profile of glyphosate has contributed to glyphosate's widespread use and the relatively high MCL (700ppb) indicates a lower toxicity to humans. It is rapidly degraded in the environment to carbon dioxide and phosphate. Yes, it's a toxin but a rational and unbiased evaluation of risk vs. benefit is more useful than simply believing those who shout the loudest.
