As regulatory action on PFAS contamination and exposure expands globally, contract labs providing the necessary analyses face a challenging technical and business environment. Within the USA, there are very few standardized methods covering what are a wide variety of environmental and commercial matrices, with refinements and new methods rapidly being introduced to expand applicability and improve resultant data. New client investigations – driven by current, proposed, or expected regulations – drive technical innovation and lead to new commercial opportunities for contract labs. Maintaining a focus on technical quality and compliance while managing a wide range of applications and expectations, Pace strives to provide a portfolio of valuable product offerings to a rapidly evolving marketplace.

By watching this presentation you will learn about:

  • The rapidly evolving landscape of standardized PFAS test methods.
  • Challenges in a commercial (i.e., production) laboratory, and how operational and technical systems are implemented to overcome them.
