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.
