New CHROMABOND® PFAS SPE column variation available – ideal for PFAS enrichment according to DIRECTIVE (EU) 2020/2184 and ISO 21675:2019

The new EU Directive 2020/2184 came into force on January 12th, 2021 and must be implemented into national law since January 12th, 2023. The objectives of this Directive are to protect human health from the adverse effects of any contamination of water intended for human consumption by ensuring that it is wholesome and clean, and to improve access to water intended for human consumption.
By January 12th, 2024, the Commission shall establish technical guidelines regarding methods of analysis for the monitoring of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances including detection limits, parametric values and frequency of sampling. The directive defines the following parameters: ‘PFAS Total’ and ‘Sum of PFAS’. The parameter ‘PFAS Total’ means the totality of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances. ´The parameter ‘Sum of PFAS’ means the sum of 20 per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances. Those 20 analytes shall be monitored when the risk assessment and risk management of the catchment areas for abstraction points carried out in accordance with Article 8 conclude that those substances are likely to be present in a given water supply.
The determination of the sum of 20 PFAS from water by SPE and LC-MS/MS according to DIRECTIVE (EU) 2020/2184 is the latest application development in the area of PFAS analysis at MACHEREY-NAGEL.
