ProfilerF Wastewater: Measure PFAS in Industrial Wastewater

While analytical methods such as LC-MS/MS and the Total Oxidizable Precursor (TOP) Assay can measure a limited set of targeted chemicals and precursors with high sensitivity, they are complex and time consuming. In many cases, these methods fail to identify all PFAS compounds and are unable to measure them accurately.

Move from Individual PFAS Quantification to Total Concentration of TOF

Non-targeted methods are gaining traction as the focus moves from individual PFAS pollutants to the overall concentration of organic or insoluble fluorine. Measuring the total fluorine content is critical to control the overall impact of these compounds on the environment.

Know the full scope of inorganic fluoride and organic fluorine

The new ProfilerF Wastewater Analyzer goes beyond measuring a limited set of compounds and gives companies the full scope of both inorganic fluoride and organic fluorine compounds. This is important because it helps us understand the total organic fluorine profile and the detrimental impact these compounds can have on the environment and human health. 

White Paper: Determining Total Organic Fluorine in Wastewater and Process Water Samples

Until now, analysis of targeted polyfluorinated alkyl substances (PFAS) has seemed sufficient to assessing the environmental impact of this large group of manmade, highly fluorinated substances. Consensus is forming among scientists that analysis of total organic fluorine (TOF) provides a better overall picture of PFAS impact and, as a result, an improved approach to this analysis is needed.
