SGS’S Dr. Bharat Chandramouli to Present on GC-MS/MS Approaches for Chlorinated POPs Analysis at Waters Online Dioxin Symposium​, September 22

GC-HRMS is currently used to analyze chlorinated dioxins and furans, PCBs, pesticides and other halogenated compounds. New approaches, such as GC-MS/MS, require compatibility with existing methods and quality criteria to demonstrate equivalency with GC-HRMS data. Bharat Chandramouli, Ph. D., Environmental Laboratory Product Manager, North America at SGS and Coreen Hamilton, Ph. D., Senior Scientist, SGS […]

SGS’S DR. BHARAT CHANDRAMOULI TO PRESENT ON GC-MS/MS APPROACHES FOR CHLORINATED POPS ANALYSIS AT NEMC VIRTUAL CONFERENCE, AUGUST 18

GC-HRMS is currently used to analyze chlorinated dioxins and furans, PCBs, pesticides and other chlorinated and brominated contaminants. New approaches, such as GC-MS/MS, show promise as alternatives but require new development and the testing of compatibility with existing methods and quality criteria to demonstrate equivalency with GC-HRMS data. SGS AXYS has been at the forefront […]

DR. BHARAT CHANDRAMOULI OF SGS TO PRESENT ON PFAS MONITORING AT WASTEWATER TREATMENT PLANTS AT ECOS VIRTUAL CONFERENCE, JULY 29

PFAS in wastewater and biosolids present a difficult challenge as they are not removed/destroyed through conventional treatment. The conversion of precursors into persistent perfluorinated carboxylates and sulfonates during treatment poses further human and ecological risks. To discuss this issue, Bharat Chandramouli, Ph. D., Environmental Laboratory Product Manager, North America at SGS, joins an expert panel […]

Dr. Bharat Chandramouli of SGS to Present on PFAS in Air at the A&WMA Virtual Conference

Bharat Chandramouli, Ph. D, Environmental Laboratory Product Manager, at SGS North America, joins an expert panel at the upcoming A&WMA ACE Virtual Conference to discuss, “Ambient Air Methods, Analytical Challenges and Breakthroughs Associated with PFAS”, Tuesday, June 30, 1:30 PM – 3:15 PM ET. The science related to PFAS in air is still in progress, […]

US DoD and EPA Update on PFAS Methods

The annual DoD EMDQ Workshop, usually a source of great information and networking, was cancelled this year. To cover updates that would have been discussed at the workshop, the DoD team hosted an informative webinar on multiple topics. Highlighted below are some PFAS methods updates from Janice Willey’s May 19 presentation. The PFAS Isotope Dilution […]

Contaminants of Emerging Concern in Anishnaabeg Aquatic Ecosystems

Information on the occurrence of contaminants of emerging concern (CEC) in the aquatic ecosystems that North American indigenous communities depend on is scarce. Given the particular importance of these ecosystems for food and economic security of indigenous communities, assessing the presence of contaminants becomes very important. Therefore, we wanted to highlight an excellent study [1] […]

Extracting Cationic and Zwitterionic PFAS from AFFF-Contaminated Soils

Image of soil

The PFAS on the regulatory radar, such as PFOS, PFOA, and other related targets on typical laboratory lists, are anionic, or neutral. Therefore, the methods are optimized for anionic PFAS and feature standardized solid extraction using methanol containing ammonia, and weak anion exchange cleanup. However, many aqueous film forming foam (AFFF) active ingredients can be […]
