Anatek Labs is approved for PFAS analysis by EPA Methods 533 and 537.1 for Fifth Unregulated Contaminant Monitoring Rule (UCMR5).
Anatek Labs is accredited by the Florida Department of Health (NELAP), Washington Department of Ecology, Oregon Environmental Lab Accreditation Program (ORELAP), and New Mexico Environmental Department to perform testing for PFOA, PFOS, and other perfluorinated compounds.
Anatek Labs was also approved by the EPA for PFAS/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. Specific sampling instructions are available - select PFAS Sampling Instructions.
PFAS/PFC analyte lists for each method are available here: PFAS Analytes
Call the laboratory for quotes on large or long-term monitoring projects, or if your regulatory requirements call for EPA 537.1 (18 PFAS compounds).
Anatek Labs has performed PFAS analysis for a project that collected snow and meltwater samples from Mt. Everest. This study found significant levels of PFAS contamination on the world's tallest peak.
