The analysis of PFAS in bottled water

13 Feb 2023

In this application note, Advanced materials technology presents experimental data on an analysis of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) found in bottled water using the HALO® PFAS, 2.7 µm, 2.1 x 100 mm analytical column. PFAS are chemicals that have been known to have a deleterious environmental impact and are suspected carcinogens. In recent years however, there have been increasing instances of PFAS being detected and transitioning into the food supply. Two common sources of how contamination can be introduced is by food packaging, or through the cooking process.
