CASCADE EXPANDS MOBILAB™ SERVICES WITH INDUSTRY’S FIRST ONSITE ANALYSES FOR PFAS EMERGING CONTAMINANTS OF CONCERN

March 6, 2017

(Woodinville, WA) – Cascade Technical Services is the first environmental services provider to offer onsite analyses for the class of emerging contaminants of concern known as PFAS (poly and perfluorinated alkyl substances). This is not a screening technique, it is a full capability laboratory brought to the site.

They are highly soluble and sorb only moderately to organic matter and mineral surfaces, meaning they migrate readily in the subsurface. They have been detected in surface water, sediments, groundwater, soil...
