New York’s first PFAS Laboratory
In 2017, York Analytical Laboratories, Inc (York) began managing PFAS sample analysis for clients working in New York State. York has been involved in a number of soil investigations for PFAS determinations (including a 150-sample project at one of the NYC-area airports) and is experienced in the sample handling and analysis procedures for potable and non-potable aqueous matrices for the determination of trace levels of PFAS.
In October 2018, York opened the first and only PFAS laboratory in New York City. The new Emerging Contaminants laboratory was built in York’s existing Queens, NY facility, which was certified by the NYS DOH and approved in January 2019.
