PFAS Sampling, Characterization & Analysis

In recent years, there has been increased interest in per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) from regulators, industry and the public. Many of these chemicals have been shown to be highly persistent in the environment and in biological tissue and have been correlated with negative health impacts.

Cross-contamination is a significant concern when it comes to collecting field samples for PFAS analysis. There are several precautions that field personnel can take to minimize the risk.

Analytical Methods

Analytical methods are still evolving for PFAS. Additional research is needed to expand the range of PFAS analytes that can be detected and the matrices in which they can be detected.

Site Characterization

When characterizing sites for PFAS contamination, it’s important to understand how PFAS moves through the environment and where it is likely to be found.

The Next Frontiers

The industry still has a long way to go to fully understand how PFAS moves through the environment and how it impacts human health and ecosystems. Learn more about some of the critical research frontiers.
