PFAS Testing


Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a group of industrial chemicals that include such compounds as PFOA and PFOS, among many others. The production of many specific PFAS compounds have been phased out due to studies that demonstrated their negative impact on the environment. Their fluorine-carbon bonds are extremely stable yielding high thermal and chemical stability and allow these compounds to persist in the environment where they can accumulate in the food chain and impact environmental and human health. Studies have linked PFAS to reproductive and developmental issues, depressed immune response, liver and kidney problems and cancers. Researchers studying these compounds of concern examine such matrices as drinking water, food packaging, food stuffs, soil, blood and tissue samples and require a wide range of analytical sampling and analysis support.
