LEX Scientific Inc. offers inexpensive, easy to use long-term and short-term radon gas detectors. Our detectors are sold individually, in packs of two, or in bulk depending on your requirements, and we ship nationwide.
LONG-TERM RADON GAS TEST KIT
Long-term tests, like our RSKS Radon Alpha Track Detector, are performed for a minimum of 90 days during the winter when houses are sealed up and radon concentrations are at their highest. Because radon levels fluctuate a lot day to day and season to season, a long-term test is recommended to determine if you have high average radon concentration in your home or workplace. The long-term test will yield results that can be compared to the 200 Bq/m3 yearly exposure guideline set by Health Canada to help you determine if there is a need to mitigate.
SHORT-TERM RADON GAS TEST KIT
Short-term tests, like our E-Perm® System radon detector, are performed over the course of 2-10 days. Short-term tests are a great preliminary test for real estate transactions as they can be used to get an immediate radon level in a building. While Health Canada recommends a long-term radon test to determine the need to mitigate, a short-term test can help you make an early determination if an extremely high radon level is found.
