About the Test

Elevated levels of 9 PFAS (Forever Chemicals) have been associated with increased risk to certain health conditions reported in individuals with high levels of industrial or environmental exposure.1

This PFAS blood test measures the levels of 9 PFAS chemicals that have been associated with certain health risks, providing the overall level and each of the 9 individual PFAS levels. The results provide an indication of how much PFAS has entered the body over time.

PFAS blood testing does not identify the sources of a person’s exposure or predict future health outcomes. This test assesses PFAS levels at the time of the blood sample collection.

This PFAS test is not intended for use in the diagnosis of any disease or other conditions, or for use in the cure, mitigation, or treatment of any disease or condition. Only a physician can diagnose a health condition or outcome. This test is not appropriate for forensic use.

Please Note: In January 2024, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provided new information on its website that recognizes the value of PFAS blood testing by a CLIA-certified laboratory (like those operated by Quest Diagnostics).2 As knowledge and guidelines about PFAS (“forever chemicals”) and PFAS testing continue to evolve, questhealth.com may update its test offering accordingly.
