PerkinElmer to Showcase Innovative Analytical Solutions at Chem-Med 2011

Global leader in analytical technologies showcases five high performance instruments for the environmental, pharmaceutical, water and food industries

WALTHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- PerkinElmer Inc., a global leader focused on the health and safety of people and the environment, will showcase five key product developments at Chem-Med 2011, Hall 3, stand D27-E30, October 5-7, in Milan. PerkinElmer's new solutions provide customers with tools designed to perform accurate analyses of a broad range of environmental, food, pharmaceutical and geochemical samples.

"The platforms we are showcasing have been developed in response to specific customer needs for real-world applications," said Dusty Tenney, president, Analytical Sciences and Laboratory Services, PerkinElmer. "We remain a world leader in the supply of FT-IR spectrometers, microscopy and imaging systems, as well as ICP, GC/MS, GC/HS and atomic absorption technology, for a wide range of markets, due to our responsiveness to customer requirements. Researchers in key application areas can benefit from our expertise, knowledge and technologies across the environmental, food, consumer product and pharmaceutical testing segments."

Innovations that will be displayed include:

The OptimaTM 8x00 ICP-OES platform offers improved performance and reduced operating costs for determining the elemental composition of a wide variety of samples. A novel electronic sample introduction system provides superior sensitivity and innovative radio frequency (RF) generator technology dramatically reduces total cost of operation by reducing argon gas consumption. With exceptional throughput and detection limits, this easy to use instrument platform lowers cost per analysis and helps laboratories meet the continued challenges of the environmental market.

Taking atomic absorption to new levels, the compact PinAAcleTM spectrometer is technically superior to its rivals offering the performance needed for environmental, food and consumer product testing. Based on an optical system that utilizes state-of-the-art fiber optics, the instrument has a newly designed light path which shapes 100% of the beam resulting in the smallest footprint of any combined flame/granite furnace AA system on the market.

The Clarus® SQ 8 GC/MS delivers reliable throughput and productivity for analysts requiring extreme sensitivity, such as in environmental and food testing applications. By minimizing requirements for instrument calibration and reducing the need for sample preparation and concentration, the system dramatically improves workflow and provides consistent and reliable results. Its revolutionary Smart SourceTM technology provides unprecedented access, ease of use, and maintenance for the user resulting in increased uptime and reduced operating costs.

PerkinElmer's comprehensive quality approach, from product design, development and manufacturing through to customer support, assures high quality FT-IR analysis. The compact Spectrum TwoTM FT-IR spectrometer combines superb performance with low maintenance, and can be used by non-expert users outside traditional laboratory environments. In even the most demanding applications, PerkinElmer FrontierTM systems offer superior near-, mid- and far- IR spectroscopic performance. The instrument combines sensitivity with flexibility for use in many diverse sectors including food, water, environment and pharmaceutical testing.

Product specialists will be available to discuss how PerkinElmer's analytical solutions can improve laboratory productivity and cost-effectiveness. For further information on PerkinElmer's analytical solutions, please visit
