KNOW HOW, CAPACITY AND GLOBAL REACH ASSURE YOUR PFAS ANALYSIS GETS DONE QUICKLY AND GETS DONE RIGHT!

PFAS analysis, especially in drinking water, is surging in North America and around the globe. You need a laboratory with the expertise and the instrumentation in place to get your testing done with quality and on a timely basis. SGS laboratories, including SGS Axys, are your technical resource for ALL your PFAS analysis.

In one phone call, you’ll find we cover all your possible matrices. SGS has a proven track-record in supporting analytical projects for our industrial clients and DoD, U.S. Air Force, Navy and other federal agencies, including the analysis of PFAS (also known as PFCs) for various matrices (as identified below) by EPA 537 and EPA 537 modified.

Multiple SGS labs across the globe are accredited for PFAS including SGS Orlando, SGS Wilmington and SGS Axys, which means we provide a significant share of testing capacity in North America,. These SGS laboratories are both state and DoD certified to perform the following analyses, and they deliver the highest quality data on time at a competitive price:

THE CHALLENGE

Per- and polyfluorinated alkyl substances (PFAS), also known as perfluorinated chemicals (PFCs), are classified as emerging environmental contaminants based on increasing regulatory interest, potential risk to human health and the environment, and evolving regulatory standards. PFAS, 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 cookware, textiles, firefighting foams, metal plating, semi-conductors, paper and packaging, coating additives, cleaning products and pesticides. They are persistent and bioaccumulative in the environment.

THE SOLUTION

Look to SGS for the expertise and capacity to perform PFAS analysis and produce timely and high quality data throughout North America and around the globe. The laboratories have extensive experience analyzing these compounds for a variety of public and government clients.
