RADON TESTING MAY - AUGUST?: 6 MONTH RADON TEST ENCOURAGED
Thank you for your interest in testing with the Evict Radon National Study
The Evict Radon National Study is a national research study involving researchers and scientific partners from across Canada who are dedicated to solving Canada’s significant and worsening radon-gas exposure problem. Radon is a substantial cause of lung cancer even in non-smokers. By testing your home with our at-cost, research-grade radon test kits and enrolling in our national, public university-based research study, you are helping researchers from across Canada to understand radon exposure and develop new ways to protect ourselves and loved ones.
Common practice stated that winter is the optimal time to radon test. However, as we collect more data, we have determined little difference between winter and spring radon testing. We do, however, encourage our participants to test over seasonal change. At this time, the best and most accurate radon readings obtained during the spring and summer months are those that are longer than 6 months.
By joining the Evict Radon National Study, you are contributing to cancer prevention research to understand and ultimately engineer out the radon from our homes. Everything we do goes through a rigorous Research Ethics Board approval process. By consenting to participate in this study, you simply agree that your radon reading and the corresponding home metric survey can be shared with researchers in a de-identified manner. Please note that all study data is kept encrypted and stored within Canada on highly secure data platforms protected by Canadian law. We will never publish individual addresses, or anything that can identify you or your specific home.
All Evict Radon National Study tests kits include rigorous quality controls so that you (and our research team) have high confidence that all radon readings are:
Radon test production is an International Standards Organization (ISO 17025) certified process, and we include additional checks and controls on test device delivery, testing, and shipping between our team, participants, and the laboratories that read test devices.
As a research ethics board approved study, no part of radon testing kit costs are taken as profits by any party. Canadians who enroll in this national research endeavor are helping cancer prevention researchers located in multiple Universities across Canada to understand radon exposure and develop new ways to protect ourselves and loved ones. By testing your home with the Evict Radon National Study, you’re helping everyone work towards a radon-induced lung cancer free future.
Thank you for your interest in Evict Radon. Evict Radon test kits will be available in October 2019. Please enter your email and we will notify you when kits are available for purchase.
