Radon Test Kits

The New York State Department of Health does not currently have test kits available for purchase. You can purchase a short term radon test kit from your local hardware store, through Amazon, or through a radon testing laboratory such as: Radon Testing Corporation of America, Alpha Energy, Accustar, AirChek, or EMSL.

Orders placed for New York State Department of Health radon test kits prior to July 1, 2020, have been sent to the laboratory and will be filled. Due to COVID-19, the laboratory is experiencing extremely long (4 months or more) delays in filling orders.
