For over four decades, Cancer Focus Northern Ireland has been providing care and support services for those suffering from cancer and their loved ones. They also offer a variety of cancer prevention programs to help lessen a person's risk of getting cancer, and fund research that aids in both finding the causes of various types of cancers, as well as treatments for them.
Recently, Cancer Focus Northern Ireland choose the 6.5 UV Index Meter to aid in the Irish government's current 10-year skin cancer prevention initiative that focuses on the early detection and prevention of skin cancer. By using the 6.5 UV Index Meter, Cancer Focus Northern Ireland joins other global organizations like SunSmart Australia that hope to promote an even better public understanding of the UV index.
In addition to aiding in cancer research, many of the company's other Solarmeter brand UV meters have been used to make both medical and scientific breakthroughs. In fact, the Model 5.7 Sensitive Total UV (A+B) Meter has been used by organizations like the XP Family Support Group in California and XP Society of Israel to monitor xeroderma pigmentosum (XP) UV Exposure. XP is a rare inherited disease that affects females and males and causes them to be very sensitive to ultraviolet radiation. With the aid of this UV meter, organizations hope to discover life-changing information that can aid in making the lives of those who suffer from XP better.
