WHAT: PerkinElmer, Inc., a global leader focused on the health and safety of people and the environment, today announced that it will feature a wide range of its innovative products and services at the 62nd American Society for Mass Spectrometry (ASMS) Conference at the Hilton Baltimore on June 15-19. "PerkinElmer is pleased to showcase our comprehensive portfolio of mass spectrometry and supporting informatics and services offerings. Analytical scientists need these solutions in their labs to obtain important insights and information to help solve critical issues impacting our environment," said Jon DiVincenzo, President, Environmental Health, PerkinElmer. "The unique interfaces developed for our technologies provide scientists with an unprecedented level of simplicity and control, enabling them to perform complex analyses with ease and confidence -- significantly contributing to advances in research."
AT ASMS: Visit PerkinElmer at ASMS (Booth #112, Baltimore Conference Center, or Hospitality Suite 4 and 5, Hilton Baltimore) to learn about how the following mass spectrometry products can facilitate better results in food, environmental, forensics, pharmaceutical and industrial analyses:

NexION® 350 ICP-MS: PerkinElmer's newest atomic spectroscopy product designed to empower laboratory professionals with greater efficiency in elemental analyses, specifically delivering the most accurate characterization of nanoparticles in the market. The NexION 350 operates using Syngistix™ for ICP-MS Software, a proprietary workflow-based atomic spectroscopy platform featuring an intuitive interface with easy navigation for each step of an analysis -- from starting the instrument, to optimizing the system, to creating methods and sample lists. Syngistix is also compatible with the TIBCO® Spotfire® analytics platform for data visualization, insight and time savings.

AxION® 2 TOF MS: an instrument that includes a broad array of detection capabilities designed to simplify and streamline virtually any analytical workflow that requires full spectrum capability, speed, sensitivity, or dynamic range. It offers exceptional sensitivity, along with PerkinElmer's patented TrapPulse™ capability, for use in environmental, forensic, metabolite identification, impurity profiling, food safety, nutraceutical, or product degradation analysis.

AxION® Direct Sample Analysis™ (DSA™): a sample introduction technology that brings ease, productivity and enhanced performance to any lab and provides a robust alternative to front-end GC or LC systems. No up-front chromatographic separation, lengthy method development, and minimal sample preparation are needed when using AxION DSA. Analytical labs specializing in food, forensics, environmental, pharmaceutical and industrial research are using the AxION DSA to significantly save analysis time.

AxION® iQT™ GC/MS/MS: an advanced mass spectrometry technology that is designed to facilitate targeted and non-targeted compound analysis. Includes application-centric software to simplify workflows and delivers highly specific, sensitive MS/MS results for virtually any application, such as analysis of pesticides in food for quality, safety and authenticity; analysis of drugs in forensic toxicology; quantitation of non-derivatized steroids; and trace evidence analysis for crime scene investigation.

Clarus® SQ 8 GC/MS: an instrument that delivers reliable throughput and productivity for applications requiring extreme sensitivity, such as environmental and food testing. It is designed around Clarifi™, the world's most sensitive GC/MS detector, which uses the latest electron technology to provide the greatest sensitivity and longest operational lifetime. Clarus SQ 8's revolutionary SMARTSource™ technology provides unprecedented access, ease of use, and maintenance, resulting in increased uptime and reduced operating costs.

Please visit PerkinElmer's booth to learn more about the following services and software for laboratory professionals:

OneSource® Laboratory Services: a single source for laboratory services, with a global team of certified, factory-trained customer support engineers. PerkinElmer's OneSource programs are flexible and scalable, tailored to the specific needs and goals of individual customers. OneSource offerings are the most comprehensive portfolio of professional lab services in the industry, including complete care programs for nearly every technology and manufacturer.

PerkinElmer's Informatics: scientific software to enable data visualization, acquisition and analysis. These offerings include: TIBCO Spotfire, a software platform with a dynamic, collaborative interface that assimilates data from multiple sources (e.g., chemical structures, text, numbers, images, chemical properties and biological assays); ChemDraw®, the original chemical structure drawing software, and the Elements® platform, a new cloud-based scientific collaboration tool.
PRESS EVENT: PerkinElmer will be hosting its annual press event at ASMS on Tuesday, June 17 from 9:30 – 10:30 am ET in the PerkinElmer Hospitality Suite, Hilton Baltimore Hotel, rooms Holiday 4 & 5. Speakers will include:
  • Jon DiVincenzo, President, Environmental Health, PerkinElmer, will provide an overview of the Company and its offerings
  • Dr. Victor Weedn, Dept. Chair of Forensic Sciences at George Washington University, will discuss the future of mass spectrometry in forensics
  • Dr. Andrew Tyler, Mass Spectrometry Regional Leader, PerkinElmer, will speak on behalf of Dr. Alun Hutchings, Head of Cardiff Toxicology Laboratories at Llandough Hospital in Wales, about innovation in mass spectrometry
  • Terri Handler, Development Associate of the ALS Therapy Development Institute (TDI), will accept a charitable donation from PerkinElmer to help advance research at TDI
