PFAS are a diverse group of compounds resistant to heat, water, and oil. For decades, PFAS has been used in hundreds of industrial applications and consumer products across the globe including carpeting, apparel, upholstery, food paper wrappings, fire-fighting foams, and metal plating. Recently, PFAS chemicals have garnered the attention of the media and regulatory bodies due to their widespread use and potential harmful effects on humans.

While public information about PFAS contaminants is on the rise, these chemicals have been around for a long time. With decades of experience in persistent organic pollutant testing, Pace was one of the first commercial laboratories to analyze for PFAS compounds. And, as regulatory requirements and methodologies evolved, we responded. Today, Pace has the capabilities to analyze for PFAS through our in-house national network of labs or on-site via PFAST®, the only certified PFAS mobile lab service in the industry.
