Best Practices for Optimizing PFAS Analysis

Courtesy of Shimadzu Scientific Instruments Inc

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are currently of great public health and environmental concern. Because PFAS are ubiquitous and commonly used in materials routinely employed for chemical analysis, laboratories are in need of streamlined protocols to minimize background contamination from these chemicals and quickly generate accurate data. This ebook outlines best practices, from the field to the bench, for achieving those goals. It includes information related to collecting samples, such as field equipment and lab equipment decontamination, and preparing samples with appropriate materials.
