Product Description

Basic Radiological product includes testing for uranium and gross alpha & beta. Uranium is a naturally occurring element that is considered mildly radioactive. Uranium is present in most soils at a couple of parts per million, but can be much higher in certain rock formations. Uranium is known to cause problems with kidney toxicity and potentially some forms of cancer. The EPA has established a maximum contaminant level (MCL) of 30 parts per billion for uranium in drinking water. Gross alpha particles emit radiation due to unstable atoms and include isotopes such as uranium 238, radium 226, radon 222 and thorium 232. The EPA has established an MCL of 15 Piccocuries (pCi) per liter for gross alpha. Gross beta particles are subatomic particles emitted from radioactive atoms. Beta particles are equivalent to electronics and have a charge of negative one. Some beta emitters include tritium, cobalt-60, strontium-90 and radium 228. Gross beta is regulated by the EPA at 4 millirems per year. Running a gross alpha and beta test will give you a general idea of the level of radioactivity and can be less expensive than running tests for the individual isotopes which contribute to radiation.

Unsure how to take a proper water sample?  These sampling instructions for testing for uranium and gross alpha & beta in your water should help.

This National Testing Laboratories Kit ships FREE to locations in the United States via UPS Ground.

How long does testing typically take?

That depends entirely on the testing you request.  As a general rule, however, test results get emailed to you in less than 7 to 10 business days.

Will I have to pay any other laboratory or testing fees?

No.  The listed cost of each test kit includes all fees associated with the actual testing of your water sample(s).

What does shipping samples to the laboratory cost?

You will need to pay for the shipping of your sample(s) to the laboratory for testing.

For all samples requiring bacteria testing you will need to make sure the sample arrives at the laboratory within 24 hours after collection or the lab may not get an accurate bacteria count in the water.

When last we checked, overnight shipping to a National Testing Labs facility from anywhere in the Continental United States costs between $35 and $60.  You will need to pay the shipping directly to your chosen carrier (i.e. UPS, Fed Ex, or USPS).
