Product Overview

Radon in air test kits include two radon sampling test canisters, instructions for use, data sheet for notation of exposure information, a pre-paid return mailer and a pre-paid report of laboratory analysis. Designed to be used in real estate transactions following the US EPA simultaneous testing protocol. They can also be used to measure the "stack effect" by placing one canister on the lowest level and another on a higher level. Each test canister is an open face activated charcoal canister measuring 4 in. Dia, 1 in. D, and contains 75 g of activated charcoal. The devices are designed to be exposed in an indoor environment for a minimum of 48 hours and a maximum of 96 hours, with a recommended exposure of 48 hours. To begin the radon measurement the user removes the tape and the lid and sets the canister in a room for the chosen exposure period. The user writes the start date and time, ending date and time and test location information on a data sheet. During the exposure period the device is left open and undisturbed, so that radon-laden air can diffuse through the metal screen and adsorb onto the activated charcoal. In the laboratory, the closed device is placed on a gamma detector. The average radon concentration over the exposure period is reported in picoCuries per liter.

The test works fine. It is easy to use. It detected high levels of radon in my home. Be advised that their lab is not open on the weekends. You need to do you test so that you can ship it and have it arrive on a weekday, not the weekend. Plan accordingly.

      Test kit contained everything necessary to perform the test and send to the lab for analysis. The instructions were clear and the lab fee is included in the purchase price. Used this kit as a follow-up to a previous test performed using a different test kit and the results of both tests were consistent. Like that this kit included two test canisters which you may either place close together or in separate areas (I chose separate areas). Had the test results back within three days of mailing the kit to the lab.
