Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are now known to be ubiquitous, being detected in several matrices including water, air, soil, animals, commercial products and even in humans.

Yet, only a handful of PFAS have been monitored in detail globally while even fewer have had toxicological evaluations performed on them. With >6,000 estimated to have been commercially produced, the need for robust and reliable testing & analysis of these compounds is critical. This symposium, produced in collaboration with Agilent, will bring together experts in the field of PFAS from across the globe to discuss a wide variety of topics to improve PFAS testing for widescale monitoring and improved data quality in a number of different matrices.

By watching these presentations you will learn about:
    - The latest advances in quantification of legacy and novel PFAS
    - Developing and accreditation for routine and regulatory PFAS methods including EPA and EU guidelines
    - Novel analytical techniques to identify new PFAS
    - Testing methods optimized for water, air, commercial products, textiles, soil and others.
