PFAS Screen

$189.00

Measures and reports the level of PFOS, PFOA, and PFBS in your water sample. Results emailed within 10 business days of receiving your samples at our lab.

This is a SCREENING; your sample will go through a simplified version of the typical rigorous quality control process. This screening is intended to give you an idea of the PFAS levels in your water. If your results indicate a level near or above the US EPA Health Advisory Level you should contact your local health department and/or consider additional testing using an accredited method.

PFAS

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a group of man-made chemicals that includes PFOA, PFOS, GenX, and many other chemicals. PFAS have been manufactured and used in a variety of industries around the globe, including in the United States since the 1940s. PFOA and PFOS have been the most extensively produced and studied of these chemicals. Both chemicals are very persistent in the environment and in the human body – meaning they don’t break down and they can accumulate over time. There is evidence that exposure to PFAS can lead to adverse human health effects.

Sources

  • Drinking water, typically localized and associated with a specific facility (e.g., manufacturer, landfill, wastewater treatment plant, firefighter training facility)
  • Commercial household products, including stain- and water-repellent fabrics, nonstick products (e.g., Teflon), polishes, waxes, paints, cleaning products, and fire-fighting foams (a major source of groundwater contamination at airports and military bases where firefighting training occurs)
  • Food packaged in PFAS-containing materials, processed with equipment that used PFAS, or grown in PFAS-contaminated soil or water
  • Living organisms, including fish, animals and humans, where PFAS have the ability to build up and persist overt time
  • Workplace, including production facilities or industries (e.g., chrome plating, electronics manufacturing or oil recovery) that use PFAS
