YORK Opens NYC’s First Emerging Contaminants Laboratory to Test “The Devil’s Piss”
YORK LABS OPENS NYC’S FIRST
EMERGING CONTAMINANTS LABORATORY
TO TEST“THE DEVIL’S PISS”
If you haven’t seen the new documentary on Netflix about PFAS called “The Devil We Know”… here is the link. Watch it. The movie paints a very informative and complete picture of PFAS and other unregulated emerging contaminants. In one scene, they call PFAS “the devil’s piss”, a very crude but descriptive term as they say the bio-persistent contaminant has permeated the living world.
On the heels of the movie and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation’s memorandum disseminated at the end of February concerning the addition of emerging contaminants 1,4 Dioxane and PFAS to the Part 375 remediation program (click here for more on this at the NYC DEC website), YORK ANALYTICAL LABORATORIES is very excited to announce the expansion of its Queens/NYC laboratory to include a full service emerging contaminants laboratory.

Since opening YORK Queens two years ago, the company has aggressively invested in systems and people to stay at the forefront of this new area of environmental analytical testing, and is the only laboratory of its kind in New York City. [see 10/2018 press release]. YORK’s air, soil and water volatile organics testing lab has become a valuable local resource to those working in the NYC area.
YORK’s Chief Technology Officer, Bob Bradley, has designed and developed a leading edge PFAS operation. In addition to Bob, YORK will look to new Queens laboratory manager, Krys Trafalski, who has recently joined Team York and relocated to Queens from a prominent laboratory in Albany.
