Solutions For Analyzing Per and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances

Environmental and Food Testing for Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are man-made chemicals used as surfactants in chemical processes and have been used in industry and consumer products since the 1940s. PFAS are characterized by a chain of strong fluorine-carbon bonds, leading to an incredibly stable chemical. This stability prevents PFAS from breaking down easily and means they are extremely persistent in our bodies and the environment, leading PFAS to sometimes being called “forever chemicals”.

Since 2008 Waters has been pioneering PFAS analysis, providing turnkey applications for complete analysis solutions from standards and reagents to columns and LC-MS systems.
