PFAS IN PLANT & ANIMAL TISSUE

Home / PFAS Matrices / PFAS in Biota

PACE® HELPS PROTECT THE HEALTH AND SAFETY OF LOCAL COMMUNITIES WITH PFAS TESTING SERVICES FOR A WIDE RANGE OF PLANT AND ANIMAL TISSUES.

THE EPA GOES FISHING

In the summer of 2022, the EPA plans to conduct its first-ever study of PFAS in fish from lakes across the U.S. The agency will correlate the results from these tissue samples with the PFAS found in blood samples taken from the people who rely on these lakes as a source of food. This data will serve as guidance for local, state, and Tribal fish advisory programs.

PRIMARY TEST METHODS FOR BIOTA

Plant and animal tissues are more complex than other sample types, so you’ll want to choose your lab partner wisely. Pace® offers three primary test methods for biota.
