StephenSomerville_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 'Perspectives and Challenges of Commercial Environmental PFAS Testing in the USA' given by Stephen Somerville from Pace Analytical is now available to watch. Below is an outline of the presentation:

Format: On-demand Presentation

As regulatory action on PFAS contamination and exposure expands globally, contract labs providing the necessary analyses face a challenging technical and business environment. Within the USA, there are very few standardized methods covering what are a wide variety of environmental and commercial matrices, with refinements and new methods rapidly being introduced to expand applicability and improve resultant data. New client investigations – driven by current, proposed, or expected regulations – drive technical innovation and lead to new commercial opportunities for contract labs. Maintaining a focus on technical quality and compliance while managing a wide range of applications and expectations, Pace strives to provide a portfolio of valuable product offerings to a rapidly evolving marketplace.

By watching this presentation you will learn about:

  • Overview of the rapidly evolving landscape of standardized PFAS test methods.
  • Challenges in a commercial (i.e., production) laboratory, and how operational and technical systems are implemented to overcome them.
