PerkinElmer Showcases Latest Advancements in Thermal Instrumentation at Materials Research Society Meeting

PerkinElmer Inc., a global leader focused on the health and safety of people and the environment, will showcase two new hyphenated thermal analysis solutions at the Materials Research Society Meeting that are designed for the accurate characterization and analysis of inorganic materials, polymers, geological materials and oils. The TL-9000 and Simultaneous Thermal Analyzer (STA) 8000 will be debuted at PerkinElmer booth 1100 from November 2530, 2012 in Boston.

The TL-9000 offers an innovative accessory that enables hyphenation which facilitates the collection of evolved gases from a thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) or STA and then transfers sequentially to both a Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometer (FTIR) and Mass Spectrometer (MS) or Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometer (GCMS).

The TL-9000 offers an innovative accessory that enables hyphenation which facilitates the collection of evolved gases from a thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) or STA and then transfers sequentially to both a Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometer (FTIR) and Mass Spectrometer (MS) or Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometer (GCMS). The testing capability of this solution is unique in that it combines the power of thermal analysis with the specificity of separation and the sensitivity of detection available in spectroscopic and chromatographic methods. The capability of hyphenating the TGA or STA to an FTIR, MS, or GCMS, provides scientists the ability to identify and study low levels of materials in highly complex matrices such as oil contamination in soil, and trace impurities in foods and leachable materials from pharmaceutical packaging not previously possible.

Controlled by PerkinElmer’s Pyris™ software, the new Simultaneous Thermal Analyzer (STA) 8000 is a compact and rugged instrument that delivers high performance thermal analysis and is used for compositional analysis and kinetic studies. It enables high temperature thermal analysis up to 1600° C, enabling the study of transitions in materials as well as calibration with palladium standards for fuel cell, ceramics, catalysis applications, coal and challenging academic research.

“For more than 50 years, PerkinElmer has been at the forefront of highly precise and exceedingly sensitive thermal analysis,” said Dusty Tenney, president, Environmental, PerkinElmer. “Both the STA 8000 and the TL-9000 offer increased specificity for enhanced materials characterization. This specificity is essential for researchers in key application areas to meet regulations across a variety of segments, including environmental, food, consumer product and pharmaceutical testing.”

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it?

The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...
Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
