In the pharmaceutical field, it is crucial to stay ahead of emerging challenges. One such challenge that has been gaining attention is the detection of per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). Although PFAS may not be a widely discussed issue, their potential impact on human health and the environment requires thorough attention and proactive measures.

At Neopharm, we understand the significance of tackling emerging concerns in pharmaceutical analysis. Therefore, we provide tailored PFAS detection solutions to help you manage this essential aspect of your operations. With our expertise and advanced methodologies, we provide you with the knowledge and tools necessary to identify and effectively mitigate PFAS contaminants.


Harness the Advantages of Speed and Accuracy

Neopharm's PFAS detection services provide you with optimized screening procedures capable of detecting PFAS, including the notorious PFOA and PFOS, at sub-parts per trillion (ppt) levels. Through meticulous analysis and minimized background interference, we deliver accurate results that allow you to make informed decisions with confidence.

Customizable Solutions for Your Needs

We believe in the power of customization. While PFAS detection may not be a widely discussed topic, we understand that your testing requirements are unique to your operations. That's why we offer tailored solutions designed to meet your individual needs. Although most of the demands are for verification of the presence of PFAS in water systems, our team works closely with you, understanding your specific challenges and goals, to develop a comprehensive testing approach that aligns perfectly with your requirements.

Neopharm Answers to Common Questions About Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS)

PFAS testing refers to the analysis and detection of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in various samples, such as water, soil, and biological matrices. PFAS are a group of man-made chemicals that have been widely used in industries and consumer products due to their unique properties, but they are also associated with potential health risks as they are not metabolized and accumulate in the human body.

PFAS testing plays a crucial role in the pharmaceutical field for several reasons. Firstly, pharmaceutical companies need to ensure that their products and manufacturing processes are free from harmful contaminants, including PFAS. Additionally, the pharmaceutical industry often utilizes water sources and materials that may be exposed to polyfluorinated substances, such as Teflon, enhancing the risk of contamination of the drug products with PFAS. By screening the presence of PFAS in their water system or drug products, pharmaceutical compagnies have the advantage to be ahead of the current regulation and therefore mitigate risks more easily and proactively.

Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and Perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) are specific types of PFAS compounds that have received significant attention due to their widespread use and potential health risks. PFOA and PFOS have been linked to adverse effects on human health, including liver damage, developmental issues, and immune system dysfunction. As the most commonly found PFAS in the environment, they can be used as indicators to assess the presence of PFAS in your purified water or drug products.

Sub-parts per trillion (ppt) levels refer to extremely low concentrations of a substance in each sample. In the context of PFAS testing, detecting PFAS at sub-ppt levels means having the capability to identify even the smallest traces of PFOA and PFOS in samples, ensuring high sensitivity and accuracy in the analysis.

Neopharm employs advanced screening procedures and methodologies designed to minimize background interference in PFAS testing. Moreover, as PFAS may leach from LC systems themselves, Neopharm has dedicated and adapted systems specifically for this testing. Through innovative techniques and stringent quality control measures, we reduce the chances of false-positive or false-negative results, ensuring reliable and accurate identification of PFOA and PFOS contaminants.
