PFOA – PFOS – PFC Analysis

Anatek Labs is accredited by the Washington Department of Ecology to perform testing for PFOA, PFOS, and other perfluorinated compounds.   Anatek Labs was also approved by the EPA for PFC analysis during the Third Unregulated Contaminant Monitoring Rule (UCMR3) survey of public water systems.

Perfluorinated compounds have been found in ground water and wells near airbases and other sites where fire-retardant foam (also called aqueous film-forming foam) has been used in the past.

If you would like to test your drinking water for PFOA, PFOS, or other perfluorinated compounds, please contact either our Spokane or Moscow offices for more information on sample bottles, sample collection procedures, and analysis.
