Are you prepared for PFAS testing?

Sep 24 2021

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are man-made chemicals that have been used in industry and consumer products worldwide since the 1950s. 

PFAS can be found in: 

  • Food and beverages 
  • Commercial household products 
  • Industrial workplaces 
  • Environment (water, soil, waste) 
  • Living organisms 

Studies showed that especially perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) can lead to adverse health outcomes in humans, especially as PFAS can accumulate and stay in the human body for long periods of time. This is the reason that this group of substances is regulated (PFOS was included in Annex B of the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants) and closely monitored worldwide. Merck’s reference material portfolio comprises neat material and solutions in analytical standard grade quality so you can ensure accurate PFAS analysis.
