Perfluoroalkyl compounds (PFAS) in plastic

Determination of selected PFAS compounds using the LC-MS technique.

The analysis package includes the determination of 22 substances including Perfluorooctane sulphonic acid (PFOS), Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), and Perfluorhexanesulfonic acid (PFHxS), the use of which is prohibited under the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants.

In addition, the following results will be reported:

  • total PFOS/PFOA excl. LOQ,

  • total PFOS/PFOA incl. LOQ,

  • total PFAS (22) excl. LOQ,

  • total PFAS (22) incl. LOQ.

The results of the analysis will be reported in µg/kg.

One tool for evaluating the total amount of PFAS compounds in the sample can also be the analysis of total organic fluorine (TOF). Ask the method expert for more information.
