With both natural and manmade sources of Lithium and PFAS in the environment and their known impacts to human and environmental ecosystems, there is a critical need to assess their occurrence and concentrations in drinking water. The United States Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Fifth Unregulated Contaminant Monitoring Rule (UCMR 5) brings broadly reaching monitoring, testing, and reporting requirements to public water systems and the UCMR 5 approved labs performing PFAS and Lithium testing. The ability to perform testing compliant with regulatory methods efficiently and reliably on commercially available instruments is paramount.
For water analysis in accordance with UCMR 5 drinking water quality regulations, there’s no easier way to get up and running in compliance than with PerkinElmer’s UCMR 5 Drinking Water Analysis Solutions. You can quickly begin analyzing for the 29 PFAS compounds and lithium requirements as outlined by the EPA. Discover how your lab can become UCMR 5 compliant by contacting a PerkinElmer representative.
