BERTIN Launches the Latest AlphaGUARD Radon Gas Measurement Solution

All-in-one solution with high sensitivity, strong reliability and enhanced versatility
Date: 2016-10-02

PARIS--(Business Wire)--BERTIN, entity of CNIM Group, is pleased to present the latest version of its AlphaGUARD radon measurement solution (developed with Saphymo’s expertise). This portable equipment is re-designed for instantaneous or continuous measurement of radon gas activity (Rn-222/Rn-220 and progenies). AlphaGUARD is used as a reference by many scientists and providers worldwide for programs on radon measurement in the environment, mines, laboratories, and for investigations in buildings. This new product offers improved ergonomics, high responsiveness and an embedded digital display which makes it easier to use on the field.

Bringing a radon lab everywhere

This new version features additional measurement modes and a whole set of new analytics functionalities enabling users to increase their scope of expertise. Improved ergonomics, high responsiveness and an embedded digital display make AlphaGUARD a reference device to perform measurement and analysis from a lab to the field.

An unmatched tool for Research & Industries

AlphaGUARD monitors and its range of accessories have been used for more than two decades by scientists and laboratories for many varied research programs and applications: radon mitigation, stack monitoring, uranium and rare earth mining, water works, seismic surveillance, radioactive waste management… With an unequalled 5-year-guaranteed stability combined with its extreme accuracy, AlphaGUARD is also widely used in order to calibrate other radon measurement devices for highly sophisticated routine calibration works.

New uses emerging as radon concerns grow

AlphaGUARD is also making its way to more general public matters. Radon has been proven to be the second leading cause of lung cancer after smoking. According to the World Health Organisation, the annual average concentration reference level should be no higher than 100 Bq/m3, depending on prevailing country-specific conditions. Radon prevention is considered when new houses are built, as well as radon reducing in existing dwellings. Protective measures have already been included in new building as a routine in Europe (EU BSS 2013 directive), in the United States, and are mandatory in many countries.

AlphaGUARD’s responsiveness and reliability make it possible to realise real-time onsite measurement, enabling testing, inspection and certification service providers, as well as construction professionals, to detect and measure radon levels in private or public premises, and to check in minutes the effectiveness of actions implemented to reduce them.
