WALTHAM, Mass. & SHANGHAI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--(analytica Booth #N2, 2100) PerkinElmer, Inc., a global leader committed to innovating for a healthier world, today announced the launch of its new QSight™ Triple Quadrupole LC/MS/MS instrument at a press conference during analytica China, the international trade fair for laboratory technology, analysis, biotechnology and diagnostics held at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre.
PerkinElmer’s QSight triple quad system offers patented flow-based mass spectrometry that enables laboratories to test highly complex samples and experience increased throughput. Combined with PerkinElmer’s Altus® UPLC®instrument, the QSight system offers a complete solution from sample preparation to results and reporting for food, industrial and environmental applications. For regulatory food safety purposes, the QSight instrument specializes in detecting a wide range of pesticides that are increasingly found in crops. It can also test foods for mycotoxins and antibiotics as well as analyze veterinary drugs and nutritional components.
PerkinElmer is also featuring the Torion® T-9 GC/MS, the smallest portable GC/MS available for rapid, on-the-spot analyses outside of the lab in the field. This portable system is fully self-contained, weighs only 32 pounds, can operate under harsh conditions, and is rechargeable-battery operated. First responders, including hazmat teams, police, fire and bomb squads, can carry this instrument out into the field to rapidly screen chemicals such as volatiles and semivolatiles in air, water and soil, explosives, chemical threats, and hazardous substances. The Torion system can also be used in industrial and workplace environmental applications.
“We are excited to introduce our QSight technology and showcase our TorionT-9 system, as well as to highlight our wide range of advanced analytical solutions with this global audience of environmental researchers from throughout Asia and across the world,” said Jim Corbett, Executive Vice President and President, Discovery & Analytical Solutions, PerkinElmer. “Our offerings help customers gain fast and critical insights into important environmental issues to protect our food supply, ensure cleaner air, soil and water, provide critical data during hazardous situations, and comply with continually evolving regulations.”
PerkinElmer will also display the following analytical instruments and solutions for food safety, environmental and life sciences research at Booth #N2, 2100:
Avio™ 200 ICP-OES: (recently launched) the industry’s most compact ICP-OES designed for efficient multi-elemental inorganic analysis. This technology helps laboratory professionals running inorganic analyses who face an expanding range of sample types to test difficult, high-matrix samples without the need for dilution.

Perten® DA 7250 NIR Analyzer: a diode array based NIR instrument optimized for testing food and agricultural products. It analyzes grains, flakes, pellets, powders, pastes, slurries and liquids with little or no sample prep required. It measures constituents such as moisture, protein, fat, ash, starch, and others – simultaneously – in six seconds. Available factory calibrations cover a wide variety of products and parameters and are built from a global database of hundreds of thousands of samples.
PinAAcle® 900T Atomic Absorption Spectrometer: a fully-integrated, flame-only atomic absorption (AA) spectrometer ideal for labs needing an easy-to-use, high-performance flame AA for single element nutrient analysis. Featuring a touch-screen interface with the flexibility to operate via its Syngistix Touch™ or Syngistix™ for AA software, the PinAAcle 900 spectrometer can be coupled with the FAST Flame™ sample automation accessory, providing the lowest cost-per-element flame AA.
NexION® 350 ICP-MS: an atomic spectroscopy product operating on PerkinElmer's Syngistix™ for ICP-MS software. The NexION 350 instrument is designed to enable greater efficiencies in elemental analyses, delivering the most accurate characterization of nanoparticles available in the marketplace. Syngistix for ICP-MS Software, a proprietary workflow-based platform, features an intuitive interface and automated method setup tools for faster, more efficient implementation.
TGA 8000™ Thermogravimetric Analyzer: provides scientists with advanced analysis capabilities for materials characterization in polymers, pharmaceuticals, chemicals and food.
