PFAS Solution Guide

PFAS have been manufactured and used in a variety of industries around the globe since the 1940s. Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) have been the most extensively produced and studied of these chemicals. Both are very persistent in the environment and in the human body, meaning they don't break down and can accumulate over time. There is evidence that exposure to PFAS can lead to adverse human health effects. 

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) has issued drinking water health advisories for two PFAS: PFOA and PFOS at 70 ng/L. As the research surrounding these problematic, lifelong chemicals becomes more expansive, the need for sensitive and specific extraction methods becomes more vital for accurate detection and quantitation.
