EVALUATING PFAS CROSS CONTAMINATION ISSUES
Bartlett, S.A. and K.L. David.
Remediation Journal 28(2):53-57(2018)

Due to the ubiquitous nature of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) in commonly used sampling materials and personal protective equipment, mitigating the risk of cross contamination can be challenging when planning and executing a PFAS sampling program. This paper describes a conservative approach to PFAS sampling and includes an evaluation of three insect repellent products to determine their suitability for use during PFAS investigation.
