Cyclopure, a US-based water purification technology provider, and Belgium-based iFLUX have announced the availability of a new product that can help in the measurement and analysis of PFAS in groundwater.
Joining iFLUX’s line of other water flux cartridges, the new product offers expanded capabilities for environmental study of contaminants in groundwater.
The new iFLUX cartridge makes use of Cyclopure’s DEXSORB+ adsorbent in passive samplers to derive PFAS from water for in-lab recovery and analysis.
With the help of procedures developed by Cyclopure for its Water Test Kit Pro, SGS Laboratories will be able to carry out measurement and analysis of recovered PFAS at its Antwerp labs.
iFLUX founder and technical director Goedele Verreydt said: “We are very pleased to now offer PFAS water flux cartridges to expand the scope of our environmental monitoring services. DEXSORB+ is perfectly suited for use in our passive sampling systems.”
SGS Belgium business development manager Luc De Ren said: “DEXSORB+ is a convenient media for us to work with in the lab. We are impressed with its uptake for a broad range of PFAS.”
Cyclopure’s line of DEXSORB adsorbents, which are derived from corn,are claimed to have indicated excellent performance in removing microtoxins present in drinking water, including Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS), such as PFOA and PFOS.
Cyclopure CEO Frank Cassou said: “We are happy that Goedele and her team chose DEXSORB+ as their media for collection of PFAS. They were super to work with; knew what they wanted and moved quickly.”
