Perfluorooctane Sulphonate (PFOS) analysis from SGS – expert analysis of PFOS and its associated compounds.

PFOS was added to the list of Persistent Organic Pollutants in May 2009. It is a fluorinated surfactant used in a variety of industries, including the clothing, furniture and carpet manufacturing industries. The main source of PFOS in the environment is from fire-fighting foams, particularly in areas where large amounts of foam have been used over long periods, such as in fire training grounds.
