The PFAS Summit
A Virtual Symposium
Learn how to overcome the challenges presented by PFAS analysis in different types of matrices, such as environmental samples, food, and blood.
Discover new approaches for identifying and addressing different types of PFAS, including novel PFAS.
Get up to date on the latest analytical techniques for improving the speed, reproducibility, and sensitivity of PFAS analyses.
Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are of increasing concern. In October 2021, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced a strategic roadmap for addressing PFAS. Given their wide use in industry and consumer products since the 1940s, and how slowly they break down, these persistent “forever chemicals” are now everywhere—in the environment, in food, and in human blood. The broad spread of these compounds and concerns about their toxicity lead to a need for ongoing development of effective analytical techniques and methods to measure them in a wide range of matrices. The existence of thousands of different PFAS, including the replacement of older forms, such as perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS), with alternates, also adds to the analytical challenge. In this exciting event, leading analytical chemists will come together to share the latest approaches for analyzing PFAS, addressing:
How to overcome the challenges presented by the analysis of these compounds in different types of matrices, such as environmental samples, food, and blood
Approaches for identifying and addressing different types of PFAS, including novel PFAS
The latest analytical techniques for improving the speed, reproducibility, and sensitivity of these analyses.
We have a morning and afternoon session each day. There will be live Q&A for the morning sessions. Attendance is free.
