Your PFAS Partner

Pace Analytical® is the largest American-owned laboratory network, partnering with you to
protect our environment and improve public health.

DoD and Federal Agencies

 

Accredited and Certified

Pace Analytical® has been an industry leader in persistent organic pollutant testing for over three decades and was one of the first commercial laboratories to analyze for PFAS compounds. We are accredited by all national and federal bodies with PFAS regulatory requirements. We also maintain certifications and accreditations in every state that offers or requires them.

APPROVED FOR ALL MATRICES

Pace has been certified by the EPA and DoD for all available methods for testing aqueous and nonaqueous matrices. These methods include EPA 537 v1.1, EPA 537.1, EPA 533, DoD QSM 5.1, DoD QSM 5.2, and DoD QSM 5.3. In addition, we can use test method 537M to test for PFAS not covered under one of the existing validated methods.

 

PFAS in Water

 

Potable Water

We can help you comply with the DoD mandate to treat PFOA and PFOS as regulated substances by testing all water systems supplying drinking water to the base.

 

 

 

Non-potable Waters

We can also test non-potable waters, including wastewater (influent and effluent), groundwater, surface water, and leachate for PFAS contamination.

PFAS in Solids

Pace Analytical® is also qualified to test for a wide range of compounds in solids, such as soil, sediment, and biota. We can use either the DoD validated methods or 537M, depending on your specific requirements.

Special Projects: AFFF

We frequently test for PFAS on military installations and other sites where Aqueous Film-Forming Foam (AFFF) has been used to extinguish fires. Whether used as part of a training exercise or in the event of an actual fire, PFAS contamination resulting from AFFF can remain for decades, even if AFFF is no longer used on-site.

Pace can test for residual PFAS contamination. If AFFF has been used recently, we can ascertain the extent of the contamination or validate that PFAS has been effectively remediated.

SPECIAL PROJECTS: INCINERATORS

Incineration has been a DoD-approved method for disposing of stockpiles of PFAS-containing AFFF. However, soil, ash, groundwater, and air samples taken from incinerator sites and the surrounding area has shown elevated levels of PFAS. Pace Analytical® is capable of testing all of these matrices - and monitoring incinerator stacks for PFAS residue - to help you determine the efficacy of your disposal strategy.

SPECIAL PROJECTS: AIR & STACK EMISSIONS

Pace has a long history of sampling stack emissions and ambient air for a wide range of contaminants. We've leveraged our expertise in this space to develop reliable methods for sampling, testing, and monitoring air emissions for PFAS compounds. Our team can help you:

  • Design your project, including sampling methods and procedures
  • Perform the sampling, using specialized media and equipment
  • Analyze the samples and deliver verifiable results
