Recommended by SimpleLab™ for targeted testing for contaminants commonly responsible for alpha radiation in drinking water. This testing package specifically analyzes for gross alpha particles, gross beta particles, uranium, radon, and radium-226. This package is ideal for testing water that has demonstrated high alpha radiation levels.

According to a recent investigative report by the Environmental Working Group (EWG), more than 170 million Americans drink tap water contaminated by radiation. Long term exposure to low levels of radiation in drinking water is a serious health hazard, especially for pregnant women.

This Tap Score water test package provides all required materials to properly collect and submit a sample for certified laboratory testing. Reported results will include detailed, quantified analysis of all parameters tested.


Alpha Radiation Water Test

Is this the right test for you?


What our scientists say:

“ Common isotopes that emit alpha radiation in drinking water are radium-226, radon-222 and uranium-238. Alpha particles cannot penetrate skin from the outside. However, when consumed, they are active inside your body and can cause damage. "


This is the right test if you:

    • Have confirmed prior results for elevated gross alpha particle radiation.
    • Live near a nuclear reactor or nuclear waste site.
    • Concerned about nearby polluted waste contamination.
