Specialized Beta Radiation Water Test
Recommended for targeted testing for contaminants commonly responsible for beta radiation in drinking water. This testing package specifically analyzes for gross alpha particles, gross beta particles, strontium-90, cesium, cesium-137, potassium, potassium-40, and radium-228. This package is ideal for testing water that has demonstrated high beta radiation levels.
It is estimated that ~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.
Note: If no total strontium is detected, then results are completed within 12 working days. If total strontium does include a detection, then subsequent analysis will continue in order to obtain a result for strontium-90. This second phase of analysis may require up to 3 weeks to obtain an accurate result.
Beta Radiation Water Test
Is this the right test for you?
What our scientists say:
“ Common isotopes that emit beta radiation in drinking water are strontium-90, cesium-137, potassium-40, and radium-228. Beta radiation has been shown to produce DNA changes in laboratory studies, as well as an increased risk of cancer. "
This is the right test if you:
- Have confirmed prior results for elevated gross beta particle radiation.
- Live near a nuclear reactor or nuclear waste site.
- Concerned about nearby polluted waste contamination.
