Environmental Testing

Deciphering environmental health through chemical and molecular analysis


Environmental testing can present a wide array of challenges, from the accurate detection and quantification of environmental contaminants to overcoming matrix effects and ensuring the reliability of results across different sample types and conditions. Effective environmental monitoring demands precise and sensitive detection methods capable of discerning target molecules amidst complex environmental matrices. 


To meet the demands of environmental testing, Affinite Instruments offers comprehensive solutions for precise contaminant detection, matrix effect mitigation, and reliable results across diverse sample types. Our state-of-the-art technologies equip researchers with sensitive detection methods, contributing to a deeper understanding of environmental health and supporting sustainable decision-making.

Real-World Application

Detection of PFAS 

The P4 series of products has been used in detection of Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS), crucial pollutants in the environment. By evaluating real-time binding interactions between nanobodies and PFAS molecules, our SPR revealed essential parameters, such as association and dissociation rates and equilibrium binding constants. This innovative approach provides critical insights into nanobody-based detection and remediation strategies for PFAS contamination, offering hope for more effective and targeted environmental monitoring and cleanup efforts.

Environmental Explosive Residue Detection

Rapid detention explosives (RDX) have been used extensively in the manufacture of munitions and accounts for a large part of the explosives contamination at active and former military installations in various parts of the world. Most RDX are not significantly retained by most soil and biodegrade very slowly. As a result, it can easily migrate to groundwater. They are classified as possibly carcinogenic and can damage the nervous system if inhaled or ingested.
