PerkinElmer Receives Innovation Award in Food Analysis for the AxION® DSA™ ToF Mass Spectrometry System
PerkinElmer, Inc., a global leader focused on improving the health and safety of people and the environment, today received an innovation award from the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) for the AxION® Direct Sample Analysis (DSA) system integrated to the AxION® 2 Time of Flight Mass Spectrometer (TOF MS). This system is designed to accurately uncover food adulteration, contamination and characterization in food ingredients while reducing energy costs and improving workflow time.
With the increasing complexity of the food supply chain, food producers and regulatory bodies use a variety of analytical methods to ensure the consistency and safety of their products.
A panel of 9 jurors from industry, academia, and government with broad expertise in research and food safety recognized the breakthrough AxION DSA ToF mass spectrometry solution at the 2013 IFT Annual Meeting & Food Expo. The AxION DSA ToF technology is a one of a kind system that enables scientists to get mass spectrometry results in seconds rather than minutes by eliminating the need for front-end gas or liquid chromatography sample preparation.
