Testing for PFAS in Drinking and Non-Drinking Water

How Can We Help?

Why test your water for per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances?

You can detect dangerous forever chemicals in your water with Microbac

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances are emerging contaminates harmful to our environment and toxic to human health. These substances were ominously dubbed forever chemicals after extensive research studies revealed their ability to accumulate in the human body, persist in the environment, and resist degradation in nature. While the EPA has not officially put forward regulations requiring organizations to test for these chemicals, states across the nation have. From New York to California, strict regulations are being put in place to test drinking water for the presence or absence of PFAS, and its imperative as a decision-maker to get ahead of these regulations and keep your communities safe.

Getting ahead of inevitable regulations by investing in advanced per- and polyfluoroalkyl substance analysis with an accredited water testing laboratory is the best way to stay in compliance and keep your community safe. With more than 50 years of advanced analytical testing experience and a network of laboratories that span the nation, Microbac is your partner in detecting dangerous forever chemicals in your water.
