Optimization and Application of Analytical Methods for Assessing PFAS Treatment and Toxicity


ArjunVenkatesan_200Separation Science, in collaboration with Agilent, offers an on-demand symposium covering new methods in PFAS testing, featuring thought leaders from across the globe. One key talk available to watch is 'Optimization and Application of Analytical Methods for Assessing PFAS Treatment and Toxicity' given by Dr Arjun Venkatesan (Associate Director, Center for Clean Water Technology, Stony Brook University, USA). Below is an outline of the presentation:

Format: On-demand Presentation

PFAS are highly persistent and resistant to degradation and have been associated with reproductive toxicity, reduced growth metrics in newborns and elevated cholesterol levels in humans. Currently, there are no federal regulations for PFAS in drinking water and as a result many U.S. states have their own regulation or health advisory levels. Our laboratory at the New York State Center for Clean Water Technology (CCWT) has established a certified PFAS testing facility to support ongoing research focused on their occurrence, fate, treatment, and toxicity. This presentation summarizes our experience in developing various EPA methods for PFAS analysis and highlights some method modifications developed for specific applications.

By watching this presentation you will learn:

  • How do different EPA methods perform for PFAS quantification?
  • What are some challenges in the application of EPA methods for PFAS research?
