Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a group of nearly 5000 synthetic compounds that have been used in firefighting foam, chrome-plating, waterproof textiles and other Teflon products. They have attracted particular attention due to their toxicity, persistence and prevalence in the environment. Alpha Analytical, a leading environmental lab, has been utilizing PromoChrom’s fully automated 8-Channel solid phase extraction (SPE) system, SPE-03, to analyze PFAS in drinking water and other matrices. This application note presents the results of using the SPE-03 and draws comparison with manual extraction.
