PFAS Solutions is an independent not-for-profit organization committed to doing good science for a healthy environment. We specialize in trace level analysis of Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS), a group of chemicals of concern. We offer more than routine PFAS testing. We research and develop innovative test methods, products and solutions to the problems facing our clients as a result of the production, formulation, and end-use applications of PFAS. As independent research scientists, we are committed to doing good science and providing unbiased advice.
PFAS Solutions was launched in 2019 by the Science, Technology & Research Institute of Delaware (STRIDE), a Delaware not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) corporation. STRIDE was started with the assistance of a grant from a Delaware Foundation in 2016 to bring together experienced scientists from the DuPont Chemical company and redeploy their talents to benefit the State of Delaware. In 2019, STRIDE launched PFAS Solutions employing a small team of highly qualified scientists who have decades of experience in conducting environmental analysis and managing R&D inside blue-chip chemical companies.
Our laboratory in New Castle Delaware has the following instruments to detect and study removal of PFAS from your water under one roof:
Our Agilent LC-MS/MS mass spectrometer Model G6495C plus Agilent HPLC Model 1290 is a state-of-the-art instrument that can detect part per trillion levels of up to approximately 40 PFAS compounds in a single analysis. This gives us the capabilities to meet current and future state and federal drinking water regulations, as they expand to include an increasing number of PFAS compounds at lower and lower levels.
Our Agilent Technologies Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometer (GC-MSD) [Agilent Technologies 6890-GC 5973N-MSD] can be used to detect, identify and quantify novel PFAS compounds and related fluorochemicals that are not amenable to LC-MS/MS in various sample types.
States that have promulgated PFAS regulations require that drinking water tests using USEPA Method 537.1 are performed by laboratories which have NELAC and/or their state certification. Since Delaware (where we are located) does not have such accreditation, we are certified by the state of New Jersey who is further along with PFAS related regulations than Delaware. We have demonstrated accuracy and reproducibility by passing the blind Proficiency Tests (PT) run by independent organizations. PT requires that samples of unknown specific compositions are analyzed by us and the results are sent back to the PT organization. We can now perform compliance PFAS drinking water testing for New Jersey customers and any other state that allows read across of out-of-state certifications.
