Story PFAS analysis with HPLC NUCLEODUR PFAS PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) are chemicals that are very persistent in the environment and in the human body. They are introduced into the human environment through industrial production. NUCLEODUR PFAS columns provide a solution for the detection and analysis of PFAS. More than 4730 compounds belong to the group of PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) that have been produced since the 1940s. Since these compounds do not originate from nature, the global pollution is the result of human activity. All PFAS are of anthropogenic origin. PFAS are "forever chemicals" - chemicals that are very persistent in the environment and in the human body. They are commonly used because of their non-sticky and tensid-like properties for various purposes: Textiles, textile coating, e.g., seat covers, carpets, outdoor clothing Fire extinguisher foams Food packaging, e.g., pizza cartons, paper cups Paper finishing Fibre coating Cookware Building material, e.g., water resistant lacquer Further consumer products, such as: furniture, polishing and cleaning agents and creams NUCLEODUR PFAS columns provide a solution for analyzing PFAS. These columns show a high batch-to-batch reproducibility, are specially batch tested for PFAS analyses and are very well suited for LC-MS due to a low bleeding characteristics.
