I agree - the soil testing done by UMass Amherst is probably the most affordable in the USA and Canada, unless your local Ag Extension is doing it for free.

We used UMass Amherst for the Clinton Community Garden, and their work is really impeccable.  Many community gardeners from all over the country use them as well.
Here is their website again:

UMass Amherst does soil tests starting at $8, which includes heavy metals.
Check out the link below. You can also contact the lab directly- someone
usually answers the phone during the day  and they're rather fast with email
responses (within 2 days). Included with the results of the test is an info
sheet on lead so they might be a resource for what you're seeking.

Hope this is helpful.
