waters_connect PFAS quantitation workflow

Monday, 28 November, 2022 | Supplied by: Waters Australia Pty Ltd


Waters has announced a per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) quantitation workflow enabled by enhancements to its waters_connect for quantitation software. Through a combination of ultrasensitive instrumentation, sample prep chemistries and software, the end-to-end workflow is designed to simplify and automate the measurement of PFAS in food, soil, air and water at parts-per-quadrillion levels that meet and exceed regulatory detection limits.

As we find more PFAS in the environment and we learn more about their potential toxicity, the list of chemicals that environmental and public health laboratories will be expected to monitor will continue to grow. The end-to-end PFAS quantitation workflow is said to minimise risks in obtaining trace-level PFAS measurement data by eliminating manual transcription errors and automating data processing and reporting in compliance with regulatory requirements.

A key component of the quantitation software is the MS Quan app, which includes an Exception Focused Review feature allowing users to implement tailored rulesets to focus the review process on only those results that fall outside specified targets. This is said to cut data review time by up to 50%.

In addition to the software, the PFAS quantitation workflow solution consists of everything needed for laboratories to measure PFAS accurately and reproducibly in a variety of sample matrices. Products include Waters’ ultrasensitive liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry instruments, separation columns and sample preparation cartridges.
