Recommended for targeted testing of strontium-90 in drinking water. Strontium-90 is a radioactive isotope of strontium commonly found in the environment and exposure to high levels for strontium can affect bone growth in children, as well as has been linked to leukemia and bone cancer in adults.

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 strontium-90 by EPA method 901.1( or equivalent).

Note: This test includes a first analysis of total strontium (combined sum of strontium-89 and strontium-90). If no total strontium is detected, then all results are typically complete in 10 working days or fewer. However, if total strontium is detected, subsequent analysis will continue to further obtain a specific results for that radioactive strontium-90 isotope. This second phase of analysis can require up to two additional weeks to confirm a significant result.

Is this the right test for you?


What our scientists say:

“ This test analyzes for strontium-90, a radioactive isotope of the common metal. Low levels of strontium-90 are widely dispersed in the environment and drinking water as a result of nuclear testing in the 1950s and 1960s. Strontium-90 is a carcinogen. "


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 contamination from nearby polluted waste.
