Poly and Perfluorinated substances (PFAS) – background and laboratory analysis
Poly and Perfluorinated substances (PFAS) are a manmade class of chemicals of emerging environmental concern, due to their persistence in the environment and the known toxicity of some of the compounds. This seminar will look at background of PFAS use, different classes of compounds and analytical methods including the introduction of the TOP assay for assessing total PFAS load in a sample.
