With a substantial North American capacity and three laboratories backing each other up, we are certified to perform the following analyses and deliver the highest quality data on time at a competitive price:
- Our Orlando, FL laboratory currently analyzes various PFAS in drinking water, ground water, and soil/sediments by LC/MS/MS.
- Our Wilmington, NC laboratory analyzes PFAS in drinking water and ground water by LC/MS/MS.
- Our SGS AXYS laboratory in British Columbia, Canada analyzes PFAS compounds in almost any matrix, and is in the forefront of method development and specialty analysis pertaining to these compounds.
Per- and polyfluorinated alkyl substances (PFAS), also known as perfluorinated chemicals (PFCs), are classified as emerging environmental contaminants based on increasing regulatory interest, potential risk to human health and the environment, and evolving regulatory standards. PFAS, including perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS), are a class of fluorinated chemicals used in many industrial and consumer products, often for their surface active properties, such as in cookware, textiles, firefighting foams, metal plating, semi-conductors, paper and packaging, coating additives, cleaning products and pesticides. They are persistent in the environment and some are bioaccumulative.
Look to SGS for the expertise and capacity to perform PFAS analysis and produce timely and high quality data throughout North America and around the globe. The laboratories have extensive experience analyzing these compounds for a variety of public and government clients.
