Test Description

Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) are a group of synthetic chemicals that have been manufactured and used in a variety of industries around the globe. These chemicals are very persistent in the environment – meaning they don’t break down and can accumulate over time. Furthermore, there is also evidence that exposure to PFAS can lead to adverse human health effects. It is therefore important that accurate measurement of these chemical is carried out to minise the risk to consumer health.

Fish are a staple part of many diets and as such effective testing practises are required to determine the presence and levels of these compounds within the product and protect consumers from potentially unsafe levels of these chemicals.

As part of Fapas proficiency tests our food chemistry proficiency test samples combine the test analytes into real food matrices to fully represent real-world samples. This allows direct comparisons to be made between your proficiency testing results and your current routine testing arrangement. Through this, timely improvements can be highlighted, from which to ensure high quality testing is offered to your customers which satisfies regulatory controls.
