Laboratories That Have Applied For Wisconsin PFAS Certification
The laboratories listed in the table below are those that have applied for PFAS certification in the state of Wisconsin as of August 2020.
The DNR will accept PFAS results from all of these laboratories while they undergo the certification process.
Note: Due to the pandemic, at this time the laboratory certification program is unable to audit any laboratory that requires a flight for the onsite visit.
The DNR cannot endorse any laboratory over another. We recommend that you ask the laboratory about any PFAS accreditations it may hold, the cost of testing, the expected turnaround time for results, what sample collection containers they will provide and if they provide any specific sample collection instructions to follow when collecting a sample.

Tips for Sample Collection
PFAS are present in many things we use in our everyday life. These chemicals have been widely used to produce products that are water-resistant, stain-resistant, heat resistant and/or oil resistant. Residents sampling their water should be aware that they can accidentally contaminate their water sample during sample collection. For this reason, samplers must wear nitrile gloves (generally provided in the sampling kit from the laboratory) and make sure not to touch anything other than the sample bottles during sample collection. Be sure to read and follow any instructions that come with a water sample kit.
Samplers are also advised to avoid wearing lotion, deodorant, cosmetics, sunscreen, waterproof clothing, stain-resistant clothing and clothing washed in fabric softener when collecting their sample. Other persons near the sample collection area should do the same or move out of the sampling area.
