Perfluorinated compounds (PFCs, PFAs) in Water & Soil Testing

Posted on June 29, 2019

CARO can test perfluorinated compounds in soil and water now to meet regulatory requirements.  This is another trace manmade compound which has been causing long term problems in the environment due to its persistence as natural degradation is very slow.  We can test the below main compounds as well as many others so please contact us to discuss your analytical project needs and we will be happy to help you.

Perfluorooctanesulfonate (PFOS)
Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA)

Teflon free sampling containers are very important to get an appropriate sample and get accurate results. Please contact us to get your order in of containers or click here to order them via our new online store.

Sounds a little crazy for a testing lab, right? We thought so too until we really took a step back from the day to day business and had a good look at what we get to be a part of.

Whether supporting a client cleaning up a contaminated site to meet health standards, providing water quality data to ensure Canadians have access to clean water, or supporting the government in testing fruits for potential pesticide exceedances; CARO provides the data essential to the success of these projects.

Through our clients, we become an essential element for a better world. Through our passion for our industry, you have a lab who is more engaged and proactive to accommodate the needs of our clients and the world around us.
