EGLE Minimum Laboratory Analyte List for PFAS previewBelow is the minimum laboratory PFAS analyte list for analysis of deer, drinking water, groundwater, surface water, soil, wastewater effluent, and landfill leachate samples collected by Michigan's Departments of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy, Health and Human Services, Agriculture and Rural Development, and Natural Resources. 

This minimum analyte list was developed based on the potential for these chemicals to be found in Michigan, the availability of the chemical standards used for testing, and the ability of available laboratories to test for these PFAS.  This list includes PFAS that can be tested for in drinking water using United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) Methods 537 Rev.1.1 or 537.1, which are the only methods that should be used when analyzing drinking water samples. Other testing methodology may be used to test for PFAS in other media (not drinking water).  This list is not exhaustive of PFAS in Michigan's environment.

A fish icon (fish) precedes those compounds that are also currently being tested for in fish tissue.
