Abstract:
Radiative Protection Development, Inc., the developer of the RPD Radiation Detector, has announced the release of their crowdfunding campaign. The company's state-of-the-art detector will offer consumers affordable radiation detection capabilities to ensure they are not exposed to deadly radiation. With their crowdfunding campaign, they will raise the funds to develop and bring their product to the market. What will make this detector unique is a breakthrough in nanotechnology: nanosensors that detect specific isotopes in tiny quantities, down to the individual molecule.

Radiative Protection Development Launches a Crowdfunding Campaign: Developing personal testing devices for those concerned about radiation exposure

Phoenix, AZ | Posted on June 2nd, 2014

RPD is collaborating with Texas A&M University to make this product available to consumers. The product will detect levels of harmful radiation in food, water and even soil. By detecting specific radioactive isotopes, consumers are able to limit their exposure to harmful radiation. There is no other product like this on the market for consumers today. If you wanted to test for radiation in your home, in the grocery store, or your garden, currently you would have to spend thousands of dollars for professional detecting equipment something impossible for most people to afford. RPD will also serve as a hub for information collection, sharing, and discussion of this important topic. Consumers will have the opportunity to submit readings and participate in global tracking of radiation levels and types.


Why Is Radiation Detection a Serious Concern?

In March 2011, after a tsunami devastated the Fukushima Nuclear Plant, radioactive water waste was released into the ocean traveling as far as the sea would take it. It is estimated that about 400 metric tons of radioactive water continue to flow into the Pacific Ocean each day, for three years and counting. Some of this radioactive water has already reached the United States, contaminating salmon off the West Coast of California.

Radiation effects don't show up for years and often by the time they are detected, the damage is permanent. "Our radiation detector will measure the levels of radiation in food, soil and beverages," states company founder Brian Lundquist. "Consumers in the Pacific Rim should know if they are being exposed to deadly radioactive isotopes and with our product they can do so to keep themselves and their loved ones safe."

There are some radiation detectors available that promise similar features and prices to RPD's product, but they do not provide the specific levels of isotopes needed to ensure safety, and they are not nearly accurate enough to be useful. RPD's Radiation Detector will meet these key criteria.

Those who contribute $215 or more will receive their own radiation detector, expected to be available at the end of 2015, while lower pledge amounts will receive e-books with valuable information on protecting your loved ones from radiation. A pledge of any amount will earn RPD's gratitude and the knowledge that you are helping to put a much-needed product into people's hands. The company will use the funds from this campaign to fund the research and development of the product so that it is available by the end of 2015.
