Unfortunately, UC Laboratory is not offering analysis on PFAS. Luckily for you, we have a fantastic resource available to you through the state of Minnesota.
Note, that not all laboratories will have a full scope of PFAS analytes. You will want to make sure the laboratory you choose to work with has Minnesota accreditation (MNELAP).
