Also known as "forever chemicals", this family of non-stick compounds has been detected in the blood of 98% of Americans.
They are used in cookware, pizza boxes, ski jackets, lip stick, dental floss, paper plates, food packaging, carpets, deck sealant, and more.
PFAS are likely carcinogens that bioaccumulate in mammals and are the subject of multiple class-action lawsuits.
A positive test can indicate drinking water contamination or exposure from another point source.
Up until now, it's been hard to get tested for PFAS contamination. You either have to find a lab that tests individuals, or convince a doctor to test for you. Most doctors don't even know the test codes. PFAS.report connects you with a lab and a physician so you can do it online.
PFAS exposure has been linked to hypercholestermia, pregnancy complications and certain types of cancer. Knowing your Total PFAS level—especially for those at high risk—may help you detect certain health conditions early while they're still treatable, or prevent them entirely.

This is a standard PFAS exposure monitoring panel that detects the following:
Branched PFOA Isomers
Total PFOA Isomers
Branched PFOS Isomers
Total PFOS Isomers
Linear PFOA Isomer
Linear PFOS Isomer
Currently the test is only available at lab locations in California.

No, this test is prepaid only. Make sure you select "No insurance" when checking in at the kiosk. Adding your insurance during check-in may result in double billing.
Yes. Each requisition is digitally signed by a physician and includes a diagnostic screening code if medically appropriate. The average insurance reimbursement for this test is $250. Coverage varies by location and payer. PFAS.report and associated physicians will not assist in any insurance claims or disputes.
This test takes 2-3 weeks from the time blood is drawn to the results. Your results will be emailed to you. Processing times may vary due to testing volume.
Last year, the National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine (NASEM) released a report establishing a standard reference range for Total PFAS blood level. The full report is available here.
If your Total PFAS blood level is >2 ng/mL, you should consult with a doctor to determine if additional health screenings are warranted. PFAS have been linked to certain cancers, fertility issues and elevated cholesterol in humans.
Exposure to PFAS typically occurs from contaminated drinking water, consumption of contaminated foods, or repetitive use of products containing PFAS. You can view EPA's water contamination map here. If your community is listed, consider having your tap water tested by an EPA-accredited lab and filtering the source.

There are currently over 4,000 PFAS-like compounds in use on the market today. While this test only detects six, these are the most persistent and harmful of the class. A negative test does not preclude the presence of other PFAS compounds in your blood, however it does rule out your exposure to these six.
PFAS.report uses NMS Labs, which utilizes blood serum sampling. It has a detection threshold of 0.1 ng/ml and is the most accurate test on the market. Capillary blood testing from other companies is notoriously less reliable, particularly at lower reference ranges.
Lab requisitions ordered through PFAS.report are non-refundable. It is up to the individual user to schedule their appointment and have their blood drawn in a timely manner at an eligible lab location.
Lab requisitions expire within six months of their generation date.
If, due to technical error or a clerical mistake, a user fails to receive their original lab requisition, PFAS.report will generate a new order upon request. Contact email@example.com.
If there’s sufficient demand, yes.
