Video: PFAS - the forever chemicals

PFAS - analytical detection of a potential hazard

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are "forever chemicals" that are highly persistent in the environment and in the human body. Due to their chemical properties, they have been widely used in many different industries. Exposure to PFAS has been associated with potentially adverse health effects over time. As a result, the analysis of PFAS is increasingly getting more important. For this purpose, we offer analytical solutions for successful PFAS analysis.

PFAS has also been handled in Hollywood: The movie Dark Waters is a 2019 American legal thriller directed by Todd Haynes. The movie is based on the 2016 New York Times Magazine article "The Lawyer Who Became DuPont's Worst Nightmare" by Nathaniel Rich.

In order to give you a overview about PFAS and PFAS analysis, we have now published a video, which gives some basics about these "forever chemicals" and shows that MACHEREY-NAGEL products are a good choice for the analysis of PFAS.
