The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently released an 852-page review of the health risks of perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). The study suggests that current health advisories for PFAS, established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), may not be strict enough to address serious public health risks.
There may be something lurking in the water and it’s far scarier than any ghoul, ghost, or swamp monster – it’s PFAS, or Polyfluoroalkyl Substances.
This month Babcock Laboratories, a leader in the environmental testing industry, attended the National Environmental Monitoring Conference (NEMC). Both our Senior Chemist, David Schiessel, and our Corporate Communications Director, Alexandra Chrystal, gave presentations at this year’s meeting, which took place August 7th - 11th in Washington, D.C.
Did you know that Babcock Laboratories’ scope of testing services include the analysis of Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS)—also known as Perfluorinated Compounds (PFCs)?
We are very pleased to announce that our Senior Chemist David Schiessel has had three presentations accepted to the National Environmental Monitoring Conference (NEMC)! Mr. Schiessel will contribute two oral presentations and one poster presentation on his innovative research and method development concerning the analysis of perfluorinated compounds (PFCs—also known as PFAS).
