New Methods – PFAS


PFAS (Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances)

ARL now is NATA accredited for PFAS analysis in Waters and Soils

Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are an emerging contaminant of concern. PFAS are a family of manufactured chemicals which do not naturally occur in the environment. This group of compounds is considered to have a high environmental impact as they are persistent chemicals and bio-accumulate.

PFAS are widely used in a range of industrial applications, such as fire-fighting foams (AFFF), textiles, preservatives, food packaging, carpet-care treatments, floor wax and polish as well as hydraulic oil for airplanes.

The sample is analysed by a measured volume of water/or mass of soil/solid being extracted and concentrated by Solid Phase Extraction (SPE) and is then analysed by LCMS using isotopically labelled internal standards.
