AxION® 2 TOF MS: Offers 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® DSA: An innovative 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 utilizing the AxION DSA to significantly save analysis time.
DairyGuard™ Milk Powder Analyzer: The only detection system available that tests for unknown adulterants and known compounds in milk powder -- such as protein, moisture and fat content. It applies advanced algorithms for screening and performs the same fast measurements already routinely used for protein, moisture, and fat monitoring. This ability to perform non-targeted screening can significantly decrease brand risk and help ensure the quality and safety of milk powder.
TMA 4000: A high-sensitivity thermomechanical analyzer (TMA) ideal for measuring the coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) in materials for the electronics and polymer industries. Its rugged, easy-to-use design employs electronics and a unique Archimedean float system to control the amount of force applied and to dampen any vibration in the environment for an accurate determination of CTE.
Titan MPS™ Microwave Sample Preparation System: A safe, simple, cost-effective microwave sample preparation system for pressure digestion of a broad range of samples. Its intuitive design offers a color touch-screen controller, top-loading system to access the 8 or 16 reusable vessels, PFA-coated stainless steel body and a wide range of pre-loaded digestion methods that make it easy to use, helping to increase lab productivity.
Flexar™ PDA Plus™ Detector: Brings the flexibility of modular design, the power of sensitivity and accuracy, and the fastest sampling speeds to the most optically advanced photo diode array (PDA) detector on the market for food and environmental applications. Its design encompasses the widest detection range of any PDA detector available and rivals or exceeds that of conventional UV detectors.
Flexar™ SQ 300 MS: Designed for high (and ultra-high) performance liquid chromatography applications, it is the ideal detection solution for analysts seeking a fast, accurate and powerful analytical system to make their labs and workflows more efficient and productive. It helps analysts to identify, confirm and quantify compounds with complete confidence and is the ultimate "molecular weight machine" -- featuring advanced design solutions in ion source and mass spectrometry technology.
TG-IR-GC/MS hyphenated system with TGA 4000, Frontier™ FT-IR, Clarus® SQ 8 GC/MS: A hyphenated system that precisely determines the volatile compounds contained in or released from a material on thermal degradation, through the combination of infrared and GC/MS to fully analyze gases. This helps to ensure safe packaging of products in the food and pharmaceutical industries.
Spectrum Two™ IR Spectrometers: Help to perform fast, accurate IR analysis and assure the quality of materials across a wide range of industries, including product quality checking in QA/QC and analytical environments, forensics and academic teaching laboratories. Highly transportable with optional wireless connectivity, this IR system delivers lab quality performance regardless of where the analyses need to occur – in the field or in the lab.

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
