Laboratory Testing of Drinking Water for Perfluoroalkyl and Polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS Testing) is the only way to accurately determine the PFAS contamination levels in your Drinking Water. PFAS Testing is surprisingly affordable, fast, and convenient with Criterion Labs.
Criterion is accredited by the EPA and PADEP to test for 29 PFAS Compounds using EPA Methods 533 and 537.1.
Criterion’s local community is asymmetrically affected by PFAS contamination, so we offer affordable PFAS testing to local residents and well-water users.
Criterion offers PFAS Testing to accurately determine the levels of PFAS contamination in your drinking water. Criterion’s PFAS Test Kits can be shipped or picked-up from our lab:
Basic PFAS Test (6 PFAS Compounds): $306 ($356 shipped)
PFAS6 (PFOS, PFOA, PFNA, PFHxS, PFHpA, PFBS)
Method 533 PFAS Test (25 PFAS Compounds): $456 ($506 shipped)
Tests for 25 PFAS Compounds using Method 533.

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. Here are a list of 29 PFAS compounds that the EPA monitors, along with the analytical method of detection and the EPA’s Maximum Residue Level (MRL).

PFAS compounds are often called “forever chemicals” because these perfluorinated compounds have a particular affinity for water, so they are difficult to remediate. In fact, 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.
