Per/Polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS)

Detect, Quantify and Identify PFAS in Water with Confidence

Due to their unique properties, per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are found products including non-stick coatings in cookwear, stain repellent coatings in clothing and carpet, detergents, food packaging products and firefighting foam to name a few. These man-made compounds have been used for decades in industrial and manufacturing process. They have been found to be extremely persistent and bioaccumulative and pose potential health hazards to humans and wildlife through long-term exposure. Consequently, these compounds, including PFOA, PFOS, GenX and others have been widely detected in drinking water, wastewater, soils, blood serum and food stuff throughout the globe.

Agilent continues to lead the effort to analyze PFAS compounds in the environment. Agilent offers a complete PFAS workflow including sample preparation, background elimination techniques, chromatography, mass spectrometry, data analysis and consulting services that, when combined enable easy method setup and rapid, reliable and robust data for your laboratory.
