“PFAS Exposure™, the first at-home test to determine levels of PFAS in a person’s blood and measure 47 of these PFAS ‘forever chemical’ compounds, is now available from empowerDX, a leading online health and wellness resource for a wide variety of at-home health testing.
A press conference announcing complete details of empowerDX’s new PFAS Exposure test will be held today, January 21 at 10:30 a.m. ET. Anyone may access at the Zoom link below or view the conference later posted in the company’s newsroom.
The new, self-collected sampling kit by empowerDX measures the presence and levels of more than 40 PFAS compounds in capillary whole blood, significantly more than any other test currently available. The PFAS Exposure blood test expands upon the CDC National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) biobank database where 16 PFAS compounds in serum are reported.
‘Prior to the launch of our PFAS Exposure blood test, it was very difficult to understand an individual’s unique exposure to these forever chemicals in order to factor it into personalized risk assessment, screening and diagnostic planning,’ said Dr. Travis Wilkes, M.D., Medical Director of empowerDX. ‘With the ease of our at-home finger prick test, we have enabled access to information on the amount of PFAS chemicals lurking in our bodies, thus allowing a level of insight regarding an environmental health determinant that transcends genetics, lifestyle and socioeconomics.'”…
