IAQA 2023 Indoor Air Quality Association Annual Meeting And Expo

Austin, TX February 19-22, 2023

US Nuclear started the year with a bang at the IAQA Meeting and Expo in February. After three-plus years of no in-person trade shows, this one was perfect for getting started. Technical Associates, the design and manufacturing division of US Nuclear, has an extensive product line of air detection and monitoring instruments. In providing radiation, chemical, and biological detection and monitoring, the IAQA proved to be a good fit. 

The significant interest was the current understanding of the dangers of PFAS, or forever chemicals. We attended the PFAS seminar, and the room was packed, including a standing room around the walls. Technical Associates has a PFAS detector, and a large lab with specialized equipment and a high cost for testing typically detects PFAS. 

The PFAS-TA-L (LAB) and the PFAS-TA-F (FIELD) are small, lightweight, and can be used in the lab and the field for immediate results.  

There was quite a lot of interest in these instruments as they were seen as the first step in the testing process without being cost prohibitive. The key is whether there is PFAS in the testing sample at all, a simple yes or no. If found to be a ‘yes,’ more expensive testing can occur.

Technical Associates has heard back from several potential customers requesting quotes for this new technology.
