Personal PFAS pollution exposure sensor Certified laboratory analysis Interpreted report
Used in many consumer products for their non-stick, waterproofing and stain-resistant properties, perfluorinated PFAS substances such as PFOA and PFOS are very persistent and are now contaminating our environment.
As carcinogens, reproductive toxicants and endocrine disruptors, chronic exposure to PFAS is a health concern. This test kit allows you to accurately measure your personal exposure to the most common PFAS in your environment.
PFAS are chemical substances saturated with fluorine. They have been produced in very large quantities since the 1950s and are considered to be very toxic to humans and the environment. Because of their persistence in the environment, they are "eternal pollutants". They are bioaccumulative and exposed organisms retain traces of contamination for a long time.
Today, PFAS pollution affects the entire planet. Industrial production, consumer product manufacturing and waste treatment sites are highly contaminated and people living near these sites are more exposed than the rest of the population.
Consumption of food and water contaminated by PFAS can also be a significant source of exposure.
They are now known to contribute to chronic diseases such as
PFAS pass the placental barrier and contamination of the pregnant woman exposes the embryo and foetus to this pollution. They also concentrate in breast milk and expose infants. Pregnant or breastfeeding women must therefore particularly monitor their exposure.
For these reasons, it is essential to keep exposure to PFAS to a minimum. The first thing to do is to measure your exposure in order to identify the sources of pollution and act effectively.
PFAS are present in our environment and the air we breathe. Because of their presence, they are also very present in the indoor environment of homes.
To measure your personal exposure to PFAS, nothing could be easier than wearing a bracelet. The ambient pollution will be captured by the PPS bracelet throughout the day.
Our daily life is well regulated and a period of 7 days is quite representative of our life. For this reason, wearing the bracelet for a period of 7 days is very important to allow a fine evaluation of the exposure to PFAS.
It is the analysis of the PPS bracelet in the laboratory that allows the pollution level to be measured. The results are presented in a detailed report and compared with reference values to position your result in relation to the general population.
Your analysis report :
This measurement kit is very easy to use.
The PPS bracelet should be worn on the wrist at all times for 7 days.
Once the 7-day period has elapsed, the PPS bracelet and the sample sheet are returned to the laboratory with the pre-paid return envelope.
Only one PPS PFAS test kit is needed to measure a person's exposure.
