The concerns regarding per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) continue to grow.  In response, regulations continue to impose restrictions on PFAS, a group of thousands of manmade chemicals, and not just individual species of PFAS like perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) or perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS).  As a result, PFAS analytical techniques that only look for a handful of specific PFAS species may not be sufficient in determining PFAS contamination.

Dyne is pleased to announce our recent investment in Metrohm’s new, state-of-the-art fluorine analyzer: the ProfilerF.  The ProfilerF can determine both total fluorine and free fluoride (fluorine from ionic compounds) content in a sample.  The difference between total fluorine and free fluoride can be attributed to organic fluorine, which is the fluorine from organic compounds that fall under the PFAS definition.  Dyne has recently validated a method that is able to accurately determine fluorine content in both firefighting foam and water samples1 with a quantification limit of 1 part per million (ppm).  Additional sample matrices may be analyzed upon advanced notice and further method validation.
