Expert Insight: Requirements of analysis methods for PFAS compounds in drinking water and soil

Join this upcoming webinar to learn how MS/MS can be used for compliance monitoring methods of PFAS

16 Jan 2020


Exposure to manmade perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) is of increasing concern due to their potential toxic effects and links to ecological damage and human health. These substances can be found in drinking, surface, waste and ground waters, but are also prevalent in food, household products, and even living organisms including fish and humans. Due to the strong carbon-fluoride bond, these chemicals do not readily break down and can accumulate over time in organisms and the environment.

In this SelectScience webinar, Dr. Richard Jack, Senior Director of Vertical Marketing, Thermo Fisher Scientific, and Dr. Matthew MacLennan, Senior Scientist and Director, Pacific Rim Laboratories,  will provide an overview of PFAS analysis using MS/MS for compliance monitoring methods and look at the requirements for the analysis of PFAS in water and soil. 

Watch this webinar to learn about: 

  • The mission and work being performed by Pacific Rim Laboratories for PFAS testing in water samples
  • Method compliance using EPA 537.1 using offline SPE followed by mass spectrometry quantification of PFAS compounds 
  • Robust, sensitive, targeted mass spectrometry methods for confident quantitation of known PFAS compounds

Who should attend?

  • Academic laboratories performing analytical chemistry research on emerging and existing environmental and food contaminants
  • State-level or country-level testing laboratories responsible for environmental and food safety in their region
  • Public water utilities or contract testing laboratories performing targeted PFAS testing
