Through its partnership with Radon Environmental The Lung Association – Ontario is providing Radonova’s radon detectors to consumers to offer a fast, efficient, and accurate way to find out if your home, school or workplace has potentially hazardous indoor radon levels. The detectors supplied by The Lung Association – Ontario gives the public the option of choosing either a short or long-term test kit. All test kits provided are recognized by Health Canada and C-NRPP certified.
“The air you breathe, regardless of where you live, work, or socialize, is important to your health. The Lung Association is committed to protecting your breathing and that’s why we’re excited about this new partnership and being able to offer a variety of radon test kits for the public. Testing for radon is simple, convenient and inexpensive. With these do-it-yourself kits, it’s easy to follow the instructions included and test your home,” says George Habib, CEO of The Lung Association – Ontario.
Rapidos is a short-term radon measurement test kit that captures a measurement of radon levels over a period of 10 days. Online analysis and measurement reports are available from Radonova’s laboratory within 1-2 weeks after the laboratory has received the detectors. Both accurate and flexible, Rapidos is one of the most effective ways to measure radon in residential buildings, workplaces and schools.
Radtrak2 is Radonova’s flagship long-term Radon test kit and tests home’s and office’s for radon over a sustained period. With ultra-high accuracy over a prolonged period of time, it provides a full and clear perspective on the risk of radon exposure in the tested location.
Radon is an invisible, odourless and tasteless gas that can accumulate to unnaturally high and dangerous levels in homes and workplaces. Radon is the second most frequent cause of lung cancer, after cigarette smoking and the leading cause in non-smokers. Young people and children are more vulnerable to radiation as they have higher respiratory rates than adults. However, consumer knowledge on how to detect Radon and meaningfully reduce exposure is low.
Bill Rounds, President at Radonova, said: “We work with strategic partners, like Radon Environmental, to enable our products to be accessed by a wide variety of organizations. Remember, radon gas cannot be detected without the proper equipment. This means, while it is easily remedied when detected, cases of non-detection pose a great risk to humans in an unmonitored house, building or school. We offer state-of-the-art technology which mitigates this risk.”
Radon Environmental President & CEO, Alan Whitehead commented: “We are delighted to have teamed up with the Ontario Lung Association to provide Radonova’s short and long-term alpha track radon detection devices. We supply many local health authorities and public testing initiatives across Canada with these devices and our partnership with the OLA will lead to increased public awareness and radon testing in Ontario. Radonova is the world leader in alpha track technology, their laboratory is the only ISO17025 certified alpha track testing facility of its kind, so our clients can be confident in the lab analysis and its QA process. One of the features that our clients like the most is RadOnline, Radonova’s on-line customer portal. Through MyPages, customers can easily input measurement data, retrieve reports, and have an overview on every project, in real-time.”
