At Suburban Testing Labs, we are committed to helping you stay informed and providing you with comprehensive testing options to ensure compliance with these regulations. In recent years, public water suppliers have faced an increasing challenge: the emergence of strict PFAS (Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances) regulations imposed by various regulatory agencies.
We have obtained accreditation for performing analysis of PFAS compounds in drinking water by methods EPA 537.1 and EPA 533. We are one of the only privately-owned, independent, single-site laboratories in Pennsylvania with this testing capability. Your analysis will be performed at our laboratory in Reading, PA- no shipping samples to a far-away location. You can have peace of mind knowing your samples will be handled locally by trusted professionals.
Our highly trained Field Scientists can perform sampling for your water system1, or we can deliver sampling kits to your location with necessary containers, prefilled chain of custody forms, and prefilled labels. Our Project Managers will work with you to ensure your project is set up for success.
Testing for PFAS in Drinking Water
Analysis requires a solid phase extraction (SPE) on the sample, followed by analysis using Liquid Chromatography with tandem Mass Spectrometry (LC-MS-MS).
The sample container is a 250 mL polypropylene (plastic) preserved with trizma as a pH buffer. Field Reagent Blanks should be collected when testing for compliance purposes.
Choosing the right partner for your PFAS testing needs is critical to ensure you are compliant with ever-evolving regulations. Contact a member of our sales team today to learn how we can be your partner for success.
