Emerging Contaminants Leadership

In 2018, YORK opened NYC first and only PFAS laboratory to analyze PFAS in soil, groundwater, wastewater and drinking water. We continue to grow and expand our service and market leadership in this area.

New York’s first PFAS Laboratory

In October 2018, York opened the first and only PFAS laboratory in New York City to perform analysis on soil, groundwater and drinking water samples. The new Emerging Contaminants laboratory was built in York’s existing Queens NYC facility, which was certified by the NYS DOH and approved in January 2019.

York has developed methods and procedures to address the following methods:

  • EPA 537.1, initial 14 compounds list plus updated Nov. 2018 version with
    ADONA and GenX
  • EPA 537.1 modified to address up to 30 PFAS species, including isotope dilution
  • Top Assay For PFAS
  • ISO 25101:2009 (E)-limited list of PFAS targets
  • ASTM D7979-16
  • Custom methods developed in-house for special applications, including ADONA and
    GenX and other emerging PFAS.
