Trends and Challenges in PFAS Analysis
sponsored by Agilent, Metrohm and Shimadzu
Welcome to The Analytical Scientist’s Trends and Challenges in PFAS Analysis forum!
Per- and poly-fluorinated alkyl substances, or PFAS, are a family of synthetic substances used in everyday products, such as stain and grease-repellent coatings and have appeared in almost all foods and drinking water. Toxic at extremely low levels, regulators demand low detection limits, and the list of PFAS compounds under investigation continues to expand.
We recently asked our readers for their thoughts on the challenges involved in PFAS analysis, whether current methods are up to the task, and what analytical advances may be on the horizon.
Here, our panel of experts will discuss the survey findings and share their perspectives on the latest trends and best practices in PFAS analysis.
The event will have three parts:
Part I: A discussion of the results of our recent vendor-neutral audience survey (10-15 minutes).
Part II: Technology/application-focused presentations from each of our speakers (15 minutes each).
Part III: A chance for you to ask our speakers questions as part of an audience Q&A (15 minutes).
Our speakers are:
- Day Powell and Marcus Chadha who will discuss: "PFAS, PFAS Everywhere: Intelligence based Target, Suspect and Non-Target Analysis: Dream or Reality?"
- Linx Waclaski who will discuss: "Non-targeted Analysis of PFAS Using Combustion Ion Chromatography"
- Ruth Marfil-Vega who will discuss: "PFAS: LCMS Options for now and forever"
Join us for this dynamic forum where we aim to unite our knowledge and experiences to address the multifaceted challenges in PFAS analysis.
