SGS ACCUTEST IS YOUR GO-TO LABORATORY FOR PFOA/ PFOS ANALYSIS


Tuesday, July 26, 2016
You are most likely well aware of the increasing interest and concern about PFCs on the West Coast, so we want you to also know that SGS Accutest is your go-to laboratory for all PFOA/PFOS analysis.

THE CHALLENGE

Perfluorinated chemicals (PFCs), also known as per- and poly-fluorinated alkyl substances (PFASs), are classified as emerging environmental contaminants based on increasing regulatory interest, potential risk to human health and the environment, and evolving regulatory standards. PFCs, including perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS), are a class of fluorinated chemicals used in many industrial and consumer products often for their anti-stick properties such as in Teflon, textiles, firefighting foams, metal plating, semi-conductors, paper and packaging, coating additives, cleaning products and pesticides. They are persistent and bio accumulative in the environment.

THE SOLUTION

You're covered by SGS Accutest as we have the expertise, service ethic and methods in place to perform the analysis and produce impeccable results for you and your clients. We have extensive experience running these compounds for a variety of public and government clients.

To help you meet your PFC analytical needs, the SGS Accutest Orlando laboratory currently analyzes PFOA/PFOS, as well as 24 additional PFCs, in water and soil by LC/MS/MS. Our Wilmington, NC laboratory analyzes PFOA/PFOS in water by LC/MS/MS.

At SGS Accutest, we want to be there for you at every turn. Please contact Vincent Vancil, Regional Sales Manager, at 408 828 0526 or Vincent.Vancil@sgs.com with any questions.
