Who We Are

Its customers are private persons as well as the State Office for Nuclear Safety, Czech Geological Survey, the Ministry of Environment of the C. R., projecting and building firms and other authorities not only from the Czech Republic. During 22 years we have realized more than 32000 expert assessments and we have made radon surveys at more than 17000 areas of different size (in various regions of the Czech Republic, in Slovakia and in Germany). Our database contains results of more than 310000 soil-gas radon concentration measurements.

Beside commercial activities, the firm has participated in many research projects (individual approach to radon protection, improvement of the uniform method for radon risk classification of foundation soils, local radon risk maps, influence of tectonics on the radon potential, temporal and spatial variability of soil-gas radon concentration, role of soil permeability and permeability determination, radon database, transfer factor). The results were regularly presented at international scientific conferences.

All measuring devices are regularly verified in accordance with the Czech Law on Metrology. We have also participated in several international intercomparison exercises.

The method for soil-gas sample collection that we had proposed in 1990 is now commonly used in the Czech Republic. The sampling system and other parts of measuring devices of our production (Lucas cells) have been successfully tested and used in several countries (Germany, Luxembourg, Saudi Arabia, Slovakia).

The representative of the firm is the head of Radon Risk Association (ARR) that was established by private firms dealing with radon risk monitoring in 1993 to coordinate the participation in the radon programme with the National Radon Commission (with representatives of all engaged ministries and local authorities).

Nowadays we offer following services:
  • radon risk classification of foundation soils at building areas  
  • indoor radon measurements
  • determination of effective doses at workplaces with a risk of higher exposure to naturally occurring radioactive materials (NORM)
  • E.I.A. - environmental impact assessment
  • Quality Assurance programme in X-ray dental and veterinary diagnostics
  • accounting / book keeping

and we sell equipments for radon risk monitoring - radon detectors, sampling system, equipment for in situ permeability measurements RADON – JOK (already sold to Albania, Austria, Belgium, Brasil, Canada, China, France, Georgia, Germany, Great Britain, Hong Kong, Hungary, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Poland, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Slovakia, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, Ukraine,  Vietnam).

With our colleagues from Czech Geological Survey, we organize in Prague a regular "International Workshop on the Geological Aspects of Radon Risk Mapping". Many scientists from almost all continents (except Antarctic) participated in this workshop during last eighteen years and all workshops were very successful. Now we prepare the 12th workshop, which should be open in September, 2014.
