How to Optimize Water, Soil and Serum Sample Extraction for PFAS Analysis

by | Articles, Environmental Analysis


BradClarke_200This presentation, produced by Separation Science, in collaboration with Agilent, forms part of an on-demand symposium covering new methods in PFAS testing, featuring thought leaders from across the globe. This key talk titled 'Optimizing Water, Soil, and Serum Sample Extraction for PFAS Analysis' given by Dr Bradley Clarke (Senior Lecturer in Environmental Science and Analytical Chemistry, University of Melbourne, Australia) is now available to watch. Below is an outline of the presentation:

Format: On-demand Presentation

The quantification of PFAS from environmental samples is a complicated undertaking due to the high levels of contamination typically observed in most laboratories. Sample preparation and extraction are critical aspects of any workflow for PFAS analysis and demands a serious level of attention, like the LCMS operation. In this talk, Dr. Bradley Clarke from the Unversity of Melbourne, Australia, provides an overview of the sample extraction processes for the extraction of PFAS from water, soil, and serum, including steps taken to reduce sample volume without sacrificing limits of quantification.

By watching this presentation you will learn about:

  • Common techniques used for water analysis using solid-phase extraction (SPE).
  • Approaches for minimising sample volume and use of costly internal standards.
  • Workflows for the quick extraction of PFAS from solid matrices.
