    PFAS Testing

    Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) were once considered a safe group of chemicals.  However, the detection of these compounds within our air, water, and soil has confirmed their place as persistent pollutants within nature and turned the tide of public opinion firmly against them.

    As the attention of the public has turned towards the amount of PFAS contamination within the environment, and governments are spurred to take action, many sample preparation procedures have arisen for the most common PFAS compounds.

    Biotage understands the need for simple and robust sample preparation procedures and has a number of solutions which are designed to help you become compliant with the top regulatory methods around the world.


    ​Highlighted Applications


    Manual Extraction of PFAS in Drinking Water

    This application note describes a procedure for those laboratories seeking to become compliant with EPA regulations. 

    This application note is compliant with the US EPA Method 537.1



    PFAS Testing: Low Background with Automated Solvent Evaporator

    Environmental laboratories require a system which is clean, reliable, and affordable
    to evaporate the extracts resulting from the preparation of samples for PFAS testing. This document will outline a protocol that was developed for the TurboVap® LV system to evaporate extracts in methanol to dryness consistent with typical environmental PFAS procedures.
