Pleasanton's water is full of PFAS and affects our homes, schools and businesses.
PFAS contamination is a complex issue. While knowledge about PFAS compounds and the potential health effects has grown, many questions remain unanswered. Committed to helping scientists and regulators around the world solve these water issues to provide safe and sustainable water sources for everyone, Agilent has recently developed a protocol for analysis of PFASs in drinking water using the Agilent Ultivo triple quadrupole LC/MS. Working with leading researchers around the world, Agilent has also developed a method for extracting PFASs in drinking water using Agilent Offline Solid Phase Extraction and an Agilent LC/MS/MS system with a PFAS-free 1290 Infinity II LC System.
