Webinar on Polyfluorinated Alkyl Substances

Event Announcement

Tuesday, May 3, 2016

TestAmerica, the leader in environmental testing, is pleased to announce the newest installment in its Ask the Expert webinar series. On Tuesday, May 3 at 1:30 P.M. EST, TestAmerica expert Karla Buechler will present a webinar entitled The Analysis of Polyfluorinated Alkyl Substances (PFAS) Including PFOS and PFOA.

The webinar will focus on the unique bio-accumulative characteristics of PFAS compounds, as well as the United States Environmental Protection Agencies’ PFOA Stewardship Program which aims to phase out the emissions and use of long-chain perfluorinated chemicals (PFCs). In addition, Ms. Buechler will discuss the current analytical methods available for PFOA determination, as well as sample collection and handling guidance.

TestAmerica laboratories in Denver, CO and West Sacramento, CA offer PFAS testing by LC/MS/MS procedures to detect and quantify compounds in water, soil and biota samples at trace and ultra-trace levels. TestAmerica has been at the forefront of LC/MS techniques for nearly 30 years, offering unique solutions to the laboratory analysis of emerging contaminants. 

Ms. Buechler, Technical Director for TestAmerica, has more than 30 years’ experience in the environmental testing industry. She has held positions in Laboratory Management, Project Management and has many years of hands-on experience with chromatography systems including Liquid Chromatography Mass Spectrometry and High Resolution Mass Spectrometry.

TestAmerica’s Ask the Expert program provides unmatched access to a nationally recognized panel of more than 30 experts in the environmental field.
