Criterion’s Lab Provides PFAS Testing of Drinking Water for all PFAS Compounds using Methods 533 and 537.1.
Criterion can ship a PFAS Test Kit, or you can pick up the PFAS Test Kit from our lab in Bensalem, PA. For information about a PFAS Test Kit, click here or contact Criterion:
Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances, or PFAS for short, refer to a group of manufactured chemicals that are widely-used and break down very slowly over time. The PFAS group is comprised of many chemicals; PFOS and PFOA are the most widely-studied compounds in the PFAS group. Often called “forever chemicals,” these perfluorinated compounds are found in drinking water, air, animals, and soil across the globe.
PFAS accumulate in the environment, and the CDC reports that the majority of Americans have been exposed to PFAS contamination. The PFAS health effects are not well understood, but scientific research suggests that exposure to PFAS may lead to reproductive effects, developmental effects, increased risk of some cancers, comprised immune responses, interference with hormonal production, and increased levels of cholesterol and/or obesity. It is challenging to identify the health effects of each PFAS compound, so data-driven regulations lag behind the environmental and human health risks of these contaminants.
PFAS Drinking Water Testing
If you’re concerned about PFAS contamination in your drinking water, you’ll need to collect drinking water samples. Click Here for Criterion’s PFAS Sample Collection Guide. You can also have Criterion’s trained personnel collect the samples for you.
