TestAmerica is at the Forefront of Testing for Persistent Organic Pollutants

Persistent organic pollutants have become increasingly higher profile environmental concerns in recent years. These naturally occurring and man-made chemicals are resistant to environmental degradation through chemical, biological, and photolytic processes and may bioaccumulate in the environment.  Biomagnification is a concern not only for a single organism, but for the entire food chain, and it is important to understand the potential impact these persistent compounds may have on the environment.  

New analytical techniques have been developed to accurately quantify persistent organic compounds.  TestAmerica has been at the forefront of this evolution, offering specialty instrumentation and methods that are capable of producing results at ultra trace levels.  Although there are myriad persistent organic compounds of concern in the environment today, we discuss several in detail on the following pages including 1,4 Dioxane, Dioxins and Furans, PCB Congeners, High Resolution Pesticides and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances.
